Extension for DC power lead for HH 4.0 type A?

I need to site my Home Hub 4 in a location where I don't have an AC power outlet and where it will be very difficult/expensive to add one.  I have run a DC barrel connector extension lead to the correct place for my previous provider's wireless router, and that was fine because it used a standard connector size.  In their infinite wisdom, BT seem to have used something non-standard, and none of the plugs I have fit.  Can anyone point me at male and female connectors of the correct size, or a 5-metre cable with the right connectors on the end, or even give me the dimensions - it looks like 5mm OD / 3mm ID, but I am not confident of those measurements as they were taken by eye.

 

Thanks.

Why don't you just use a normal power extension cable and just plug in the hub power supply to that?

Or you could cut the cable and insert a length of reasonably thick twin-core cable. Be very careful with polarity thought.
