For AC power extension, a Macintosh printer extension cable works fine. It has
a mini-DIN-8 male connector on one end and a mini-DIN-8 female connector on the
other end. You do have to break out the little plastic indexing pin which is in
the center of your power supply connector in place of the actual metal pin
found on the Macintosh cable. While some concern has been expressed on the list
in the past over the power handling ability of the Macintosh printer cable
(since it was intended as a signal cable, not a power cable), I've never had
any problem with mine. It is a good quality cable that I got from Mac
Warehouse. I suppose someone might make a cheap one with really thin conductors
that would pose a problem. This does make it so much nicer to actually use the
computer in your lap! (I do also suppose someone might make one that did not
actually have eight wires in the cable, but mine does.)
