Default Power plug extension

Do they make power plug extensions for power supply plugs? Can you get them at Newegg? What about system fan wire extensions?

Any old extension cord pretty much.
Outlet -> Extension Cord -> power cable -> PSU

Depends on what fan wire you want. 3pin, 4pin, molex?

Most BBUs come with a few plug extensions for connecting wall warts to the BBU without blocking any outlets. I have like 10 of them in my car from where I have installed BBUs in stores.
