Brightbox 2 Ac Cable extension - any pointers?



Just got my BB2 but the cable on the AC is pretty short for where i need to put the box for best coverage in the house. Seen some generic DC extensions on the likes of Amazon but is it just a generic connector? i just want to extend the cable from the AC Adaptor to the box, not use a main extension. Thanks 🙂

Any 1 with the right size plugs taking 1 Amp should do. Why not use an ordinary mains extension? You'll have no trouble with the size of plugs.
