Longer power cord for Express 4k+?

Can anyone point me to a longer power than the 5 ft one that comes with the Roku Express 4k+? I’ve found a couple 8-10 ft options, but they all specifically state they are incompatible with this product. Thank you, in advance, for your time

I don't know why any USB extension cable would be incompatible - it's just for power.  You can always just use an AC extension cord and plug the USB power adapter (and two other things) into that.

Re: Longer power cord for Express 4k+?

If the cable is too thin then a longer run would have a voltage drop which may make voltage too low.

Wouldn't expect it to be a problem over 10ft, but maybe.

Any USB adapter needs to be rated for 1a or greater to ensure reliable running of Roku.

Want tidy cabling? Multi socket extension strip to back of TV, then put the strip and plugs/power supply into a plastic "cable tidy" box close to TV.  Better that multiple long cables.
