PLAY:5 Gen 1 uses a standard IEC C7.
PLAY:5 Gen 2 uses a special moulded plug which seats flush with the outside of the enclosure, but a regular IEC C7 might fit so long as it's not fat.
I'm Gen 1...phew. I wish manufacturers wouldn't make everything proprietary. It just encourages bodging to extend a cable.
Thank you
I feel a little like a shill for Flexson today, due to the times I've used their names in an answer, but I assure you that I'm not. They do, however, make an "extension" that works with your current power cable, and has the appropriate connector for the speaker. I have a couple of them for my Play:3s, and they work rather well, given the job of supplying power, and being unobtrusive.
