Short power cable for outdoor security camera?

Is there a short power cable that works with the outdoor security camera? I only see a white 25 foot power cable, which is difficult to conceal and only need a 3 foot power cable for the outdoor security camera .

Seems like this is a common problem without a solution.  Simplisafe, time to make one!

If someone could tell us what type of connector the solar panels use we could find a cable to extend it.

Seems ridiculous that simplisafe hasn't come up with one but they could at least be helpful in sharing what type of connector the solar panel uses.

@mainepianoman​ The Solar Panel uses a USB-micro connector. However, I should also note that the Outdoor Camera's Solar Panel and Power Cable were designed to fit flush against the Outdoor Camera's charging port; this creates a watertight seal so there is no damage to the charging port. Other USB-micro extension cables may fit into the Outdoor Camera, but that watertight seal may not be there.
