Rachio Gen 3 extension power cord


#1

I just bought the new Rachio Gen 3. I know the provided power cord won’t reach my outlet. I saw on this forum that some users bought extension cords for the Gen 2 but I’m not sure they use the same power cord as the Gen 3? If not, what extension cord should I buy? Thanks!

Buy one that is long enough to reach from the outlet to the end of the Rachio power cord. I doubt that Rachio has any special power requirements than any other appliance that you plug in at home.

The exception would be an outdoor installation, where you should select a cord rated for outdoor use.

I guess I was thinking of the other way around… https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FTFYH0U/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1MJXBMMDKYADG&psc=1

I was thinking AC extension, not extending the cable from Rachio DC converter to Rachio device. Definitely more DC plugs to try to match.

Take the Rachio power cord to an electronics store and find a cord that fits, if that is what you want to do.

I just got a gen 3, and was curious if something like this would work with my current power cable.
