I have this one from Amazon and it works fine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Would be pretty hard to "accidentally" clear the codes. You want the ability. Depending what it is, you clear it and it might not come back. Or you make a fix, clear the code, and see if it comes back.

You can also get a bluetooth obd2 adapter for about the same price and use it with Torque on your phone for a ton more functionality like data logging.

Or just bite the bullet and get a vagcom cable. Mine has more than paid for itself by diagnosing and fixing things and keeping my car out of the shop.
