try the $2 type stores, they have 1.5 mtr cables for around $7 and 3mtr for around $12 and they are good quality , i have bought my last 2 from one in Rotorua and have had no problems.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Trademe if you don't mind waiting.

Pbtech if you want to visit bricks and mortar.
