There are special paints made for vinyl upholstery and such. I had to replace the coiled cable to my remote VHF microphone and all the manufacturer had left for that model was an ivory color and I wanted black. I used the special paint to paint the cable black and it has held up for about five years now.
I forget the brand name but a good auto paint store should have it in spray cans. I got mine at Parks Auto.
That said, I don't think I would go to the trouble to try and paint a shorepower cable. I would clean it the best I could with something that would not damage the plastic and leave it at that,
