Please can anyone help? I recently purchased an "Allocacoc PowerCube Extended USB 3 Metre UK Power Socket with 2 Built-In USB Ports." I wish to add just 1 metre in length cable to it. Would I be able to use SpliceLine™ in-line connectors to do this? The wires I guess will need to be twisted. Also because of this will they be able to insert them in the splicelines as they won’t be rigid? Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you Rammytel

Better to just buy a piece of cable 4m long, it won't be too expensive.

The powercube which you mention has no visible means of opening for you to change the whole cable.
SpliceLine connectors can be used with stranded cable, however you would also need to buy a box to protect the splieceLine connectors (tape "will not do")
By removing the plug to extend the cable you will invalidate the powercube warranty, why not buy one of these no hassle, less cost and it works.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

I'll have you know that farts resulting from eating my curries are as sought after as my curries in the first place. I should make an additional charge for them :mrgreen:
