    Is there a way to cut the single wire power adapter wire as to separate the hot and cold wires inside? In the second adapter pictured there are 2 wires coming out which would work, but I only have a single wire adapter that I would like to use. Is this possible?

    Irregardless of how it looks on the outside, both of those cords have two wires running through them.

    Cut the single wire outside insulation and you will find 2 wires inside. Black is hot, white is neutral.
