You want the Prusa version of the E3D Mk3 hotend. The Prusa version includes a different 49W heater cartridge and longer cables for the thermistor and heater cartridge, as well as the much-maligned 2.2-2.0mm stepped heatbreak.

If you are in the US, you can order the full Prusa hotend from PrintedSolid and Filastruder.

Ah sorry, missed that you have a Mk2. I have seen 12V E3D hotend kits but honestly didn't pay attention with the other resellers. You might try contacting Filastruder and PrintedSolid directly. Even if they don't normally stock the part you need, they are both companies very active in the 3D printing community and may be able to help you out. I believe you still want a Prusa version.
