Hello,
I have 4 post rack that I mounted my Mac mini and Airport express wifi into a 1U shelf.  The PDU is only a foot behind both units so their power cords are too long to make it tidy.

So I am looking for a high quality replace power cord for both units that is either 18" or 2ft.  For those not familiar, the ends are IEC320 C7 to NEMA 1-15P.  Must be Non-polarized.

why don't you simply use a cable organiser to fold the original cables to your desired length?

I could, but I just thought it would be easier to manage with shorter cables.  I've done this for my switch and so I wanted to follow suit with these two items.

better use the original cables, always. especially if your APPLE devices are still under standard or extended Warranty, their technical support may argue a third-party power cord would have impacts to their prodcut's stability. this sounds silly but does happen as they always try their best to find any excuse to their product problems.

if i was you, i would keep using the original cables. otherwise i may miss the original accessories when i sell them later. :)
