Any hardware store...

You don't "extend" the skinny DC side, you get a cable that plugs into the wall and then plug the power-supply into that cable.

Well I have a 20 Feet Reel of the mains and I plug the Power Plug into the Zoomh2/h4n.
Forgot to add I also have a boom microphone stand too so that's the reason why I need to have enough lead.

Is there anything available on Amazon?

I doubt if you're going to find an extension cable for the dc side. Why not use wire ties (tie-wraps) to attach the dc power module to the top of the stand where the boom is attached. The dc cable should easily reach the boom length.

DC voltage drops quickly along wire runs so you want to keep the dc cable short so the devices will receive the right power input.

If you're determined to extend the dc cable you'll likely need to "build" a cable yourself. If you can solder it isn't difficult just order male and female connectors and solder them to a two conductor cable.
