Power connector size

Silly question - does anyone know the physical dimensions of the barrel jack connector that the Newton PSU uses to connect to the PDA?

Really not a silly question.  Keeping track of all those jack sizes can be important, especially as the power brick usually fails before the device.  Unfortunately I don't know the answer.  Recently I bought this adapter that comes with many jinterchangeablevtips.

Unfortunately that's not an option for my use case: the power supply is fine, but I need a barrel jack extension lead of the correct size to make the power wire longer.  Context:  I'm using my eMate as a serial terminal for my rackmount kit, and I need a wire long enough to run to the PDU of the rack.

Yup: though I'm in the UK, so our outlets are slightly bulkier :) .  But I already have a UK PDU in my rack along with my IEC PDU, because I've already got a bunch of stuff that uses wall transformers in there (RouterBoards and my LC II hack).  So it will make the wiring a lot more manageable if I can get a barrel jack extender, rather than having the newton PSU hanging about on the end of a wire.  But I may have to go that route.
