The power cable connector is the same as either an Appletalk cable or an
Apple (yuk!) serial cable. I made a short cable that connects to 4 AA cells
to run my floppy drive when I'm away from the power supply, but I'm hesitant
to try making an extension cord because the serial/appletalk wires may be too
small to handle the power demands of the ul, thus possibly doing harm to the
power brick. And at NEC's prices, I don't want to do that.
