    Having just finished mounting my pj, I've now discovered that there are a few problems relating to getting power to it.

    The pj has a "figure 8" connector on the back and comes with a 2 metre cable, unfortunately this isn't long enough!

    I've been unable to find a cable longer; is this because there is some sort of law govening the length? Is it possible to simply join these cables to make it longer?

    Any help appreciated
