About IEC 320
IEC 320 connectors are designed to connect your typical wire to different types of traditional male or female cords, depending on the design. While all IEC 320 cables are designed to connect to basic wire, the port on the other end varies from product to product. For example, C13 connectors have female tips designed to connect to male three-prong power cords, while C14 connectors are designed to adapt AC power cords. Before purchasing, know which type of cord you are trying to connect, as to avoid purchasing IEC 320 connectors that would be useless to your computer's, or other electronic device's, power cords. Most IEC 320 cords are rated at 10A, or 240v, but if they are not, be sure that they would be suitable and work properly with the cords that you are using. For any computer, home improvement, or electronics project, be sure to get some IEC 320s.
