How can I extend the cable length?

I am upgrading my Ultimaker Original with an E3D V6 bowden hotend and a mini-Rambo board. The cable on the new heater cartridge is too short, is it safe to solder a length of insulated cable from my old hotend?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Greg,

Yes you can solder an extension wire to the heater cartridge, make sure the wire you are using is rated to be able to handle 5A.
