NEMA power cables are power plugs and receptacles constructed use with for AC mains electricity in North America. These cables are built to standards set by the US National Electrical Manufacturer's Association.

It's easy to find power cables for low prices from a variety of retailers, from big box stores to online marketplaces. But "affordable" doesn't always translate to "reliable," and you should be making a point of considering the quality of the cables you're using to power your valuable devices. A low-quality cable can break or fray easily, and handling a damaged cable poses a risk not just to your electronics, but to your personal safety as well. 

Not all power cables are built to the same standards - but the US National Electrical Manufacturer's Association has set strict guidelines meant to ensure that you can power your devices safely and securely. So where can you find these high-quality electric cables? You're in the right place  -  Cables.com stocks a wide variety of NEMA power cords in many different lengths, sizes, and configurations.

What are NEMA Power Cables?

NEMA power cables are power plugs and receptacles constructed use with for AC mains electricity in North America. These cables are built to standards set by the US National Electrical Manufacturer's Association. Founded in 1926, NEMA is responsible for establishing standards for electrical products in the US. 

The NEMA plugs you're probably most familiar with feature NEMA 1-15P and NEMA 5-15P connectors, which are typically used on domestic electrical equipment in the United States. These power cords can be either fixed or detachable, and they connect an appliance to a power receptacle. The cables come in several different plug configurations used to power the most commonly installed wall outlets and devices such as personal computers and home electronics across a variety of voltage measurements. 

At Cables.com, you can find NEMA 5-15p power cords with C13 plugs in a variety of lengths and colors, and we can even custom build them to your specifications. Our cords are made with durable rubber casings and will last for years if taken care of.

Our C13 to L5-15P 15 amp PDU Power cord is constructed with a NEMA 5-15 plug and an IEC320 C13 receptacle, and it features 15 amp assembly.
