What would you use as icon to expand a box including some details (i.e. regarding a product specification)? Would you use the same icon to expand details about a single datum in an array of data (such as a data table)?

I would use an arrow but would also put a text label to clarify the button:

Another option are the three dots, also commonly used to indicate 'more'.
