I love my Mojo, but I'm so sick of the power supply. It's on the upper tier or the stand, and the little cable isn't quite long enough to go to the ground, so I have to prop it somewhere (i usually secure it to a part of the stand mid-way). I really wish I had an alternate power supply with a much longer cable run. I don't care about the standardized "8" shaped plug on the other side, that's fine, it's the one directly attached to the box that's a Pain in the Butt. Is there any way I could order a longer one, or am I going to have to snip and solder a longer wire on this one?

I agree it's a pain. One of these days I'll get off my lazy butt and mount it inside.

I agree as well. I put a cable bracket at the bottom of my Apex for the transformer to rest on.

The Seven has the “8 jack” on the side of the case right next to the power switch. Much better.

I agree. Drives me nuts. (Just bought the lower manual last week.) Been thinking about a small piece of Velcro on the back of the keyboard.

this was only a challange until I got one of these:
DC Power Extension Cable

The Meanwell supply is a great power supply. Shrink wrap one of these extensions and you've got a highly reliable 15ft cable on a great supply. Done.

Never seen one of those, but that would certainly be a possibility. I like it!

Thanks!!

Just additional tidbits.

I’ve powered multiple devices (typically wireless mic receivers or IEM transmitters) from a single power supply by purchasing power splitter cables (e.g., one PS output to 2 or 3 power inputs. Of course, the voltage of each device and the total amperage of all connected devices has to be consistent with the specs of the PS.

I’ve also replaced the figure 8 cord with an adapter that has figure 8 plug on one side and two prong plug (120 volt-US) on the other for plugging the PS into a power strip without all that extra cord.

10ft looked a bit long, but I did a quick Google, and you can find them in all different lengths. I'll snap one up, problem solved. Thanks Guys!

Not sure if this is an option for you but if you watch this video someone has purchased a lithium battery that the Mojo runs off of; this keeps direct power to the Mojo, protects against electrical swings and a comment by Guido suggests that the battery can "theoretically" support the Mojo for 10 hours.

Is the dimensions of the plug on the Mojo power supply 5.5 X 2.1mm?
