I don't know if there's a Norway Apple store online, but the U.S. one carries 10-foot charging cables, though they get mixed reviews. You might want to search and check out the options.
Also, googling for something like "10 foot ipad cable" will bring up a bunch of results, which you might care to explore. Of course, you might be able to do a more useful search in Norwegian (and maybe in metric?), so that you can more conveniently buy in Norway.

I was searching for information on iPad chargers. Yes, I bought some of mine from eBay, as well as the cables. There is a mixture of good and bad info on this topic. I want to explain my findings.
1) the iPad charger and cable always works.
2) some chargers that look like the Apple charger, and even say that they are designed by Apple, are not Apple products.
3) the IPad can tell what kind of charger you have. not by how much current it puts out, but by reading something in the charger.
How do I know this?
I bought a dongle that is sold by someone on eBay. It fools the IPad into thinking it is plugged into and Apple charger. If I plug the iPad into the charger all by itself, the iPad tells me that it is not and authorized charging device.
When I insert the dongle between the charger and the iPad, the charger charges fine, with no complaints.
I have used that dongle to charge my iPad from many non-Appple chargers. Removing it, always stops the charging and complains about not being and authorized charging device.
I am now searching eBay for more of those dongles, as the knock-off chargers from eBay all cause my iPads to complain, and not charge.
Having. A charger that does not supply 10 watts, would only slow the charging cycle down. Having a charger of the wrong voltage can cause damage.
