    If you’re talking about the external solar panels that we ship with the EnviroDIY Monitoring Station Kit, they are made by Voltaic Systems, and they offer a variety of extension cables for placing the panel further from the logger.  The connector is a basic 3.5×1.1 mm barrel jack, but it has a unique waterproof design that is better for outdoor use than standard barrel jack/plug combos.  We’ve used the 4-foot and 10-foot extensions before with good results.  You can find their extension cables here:  https://voltaicsystems.com/connectors-extensions/
