Power cable

My power sockets are behind a cuboard which I cant move but I have one connected with a figure of 8 connector on the end.

Can I use that to plug into the wd livewire (its correct connector) or do I have to use the supplied power cable???


Don’t blame me if it’s wrong, but I would think yes, as long as the notches and everything are correct, you ought to be able to use a generic cable…  There’s nothing magic about the ones supplied with the units.

Assuming a standard extension cord would work since the included power cable doesn’t easily reach any of my outlets?

Not sure, but I would think so.   They just advise against using POWER STRIPS, which often have power conditioners, circuit breakers, surge suppressors, etc…
