USB extension cable for Yi camera

Posted 22nd Nov 2020
Advice needed. I have a Yi outdoor camera outside and in order to get power I have it plugged into a 5m USB extension. Although the camera worked initially it is now constantly turning off and on. I had the same issue with another camera using same extension but assumed it was faulty. Is it possible a 5m extension would cause power to drop at camera making it malfunction. It is the cheapest extension lead on eBay so not best quality.
