Are there any good options for a longer power cord than the one that comes with the MacBook Pro M1? I've been trying to look for something longer than what Apple includes but it seems that is the longest they make. I'd love to find out some more options if they're available!

Are you asking about a longer USB-C charging cable? Or a longer AC cord? (Which apple no longer includes with their MB or MBP's any more). I carry a simple light weight extension cord instead of the Apple AC cord if I need the extra distance, it takes up less than half the space in my bag.

Yes, that's what I meant. A longer usb-c charging cable. The 2m (6ft) is okay but I still prefer something longer if it's available.

A friend has a cable from this company, very good build quality. A bit pricier than that suggested by dwfaust above and he has direct experience.

Do you think this one would okay with the new M1?

You could certainly use that, but a more robust option would be this:
Power Adapter Extension Cable

I strongly recommend a 10 foot USB-C cable.

It may seem like a modest increase over 6 feet but practically it's super nice, that little bit increases the number of places it reaches by a lot.
