As long as it's a regular DC jack then yes,  Google "DC power extension". But you'll need to know both the internal & external diameters of the barrel.

Hi @Daiveyp and welcome to our community.

@rbz5416 advice is good. The only thing I would add would be to go for a good quality cable. Let me know how you get on.

Cheers

David

Unfortunately that info is very rarely published. The two more common IEC "small" sizes are 3.4mm & 3.8mm outer barrels. But as you can see here, there are a plethora of variations. If you have no means of measuring you may have to buy one of each & return the "wrong" one, assuming it's not one of the esoteric variations. Or maybe start a new thread asking for someone with a micrometer to measure one for you.

If convenient and you can't find the right lead an extension mains lead and plugging the power unit  into it may do.

Hello rbz5416

Thanks for your reply. I did not know there were so many variations.

I tried to measure the inner diameter and it looks like it is just over 2mm.

Thanks again

Hello  Bob1001

Thanks for your reply.

I did not know there were so many variations of DC extenders. So maybe I will have to get a mains extension lead.

Thanks again.
