I've just received my Super Hub 5. Unfortunately the power cable is too short and I was hoping someone can guide me on which one I need. The one supplied by VM is a Sagemcom CS 50001.
I had a power extension cable for Super Hub 1 as well but that one doesn't fit Super Hub 5 even though it looks similar. So I need some advice which is the right one.
Only the supplied power supply is supported to work with the Hub 5. There isn't an official alternative.You'll need to use a extension lead to bring the power socket closer to the Hub's power adapter, rather than the other way around. You can get 1 socket leads to minimise the extra bulk.
But I'm not really after an alternative.
What I did for Super Hub 1 was use something like this as an extension:
What I want is something similar for Hub 5 but I don't know specifically which one it is...
So that means I still use the official adapter but its just extended.

You should really never extend a low voltage DC cable, especially with one of those thin wire cheap ones, you will get a voltage drop that may well affect the connected equipment.
