Smaller outlet plug adapter for Orbi Outdoor Satellite?

Recently purchased the Orbi Outdoor Satellite (RBS50Y).  Have found the AC adapter to be a monstrosity.  Too large to fit in any standard weatherproof outdoor electrical outlet enclosure.  As a result, isn't conducive to mounting on a wall.

 

Does Netgear offer even an optional AC adapter for the RBS50Y for use with our existing unit?  Since the end that plugs into the satellite itself has a rubber seal to prevent moisture from entering the satellite power port.

 

Thanks.

Now THIS is something I can get behind.  The power brick is a disgrace.

Glad I’m not alone! Have yet to find a 2 gang weatherproof Outdoor outlet box of any dimensions that can accommodate this monstrosity of a power plug. As a result, am unable to properly wall mount the RBS50Y on exterior side of house where it isn’t visible. Instead I have a hideous power adapter plugged into a power strip. Poor design.
