Cables.com stocks a broad range of power cables for numerous applications, and we're confident that we have the right one for you. 

What's the difference between a data center power cord, or the kind of power cable you'd use to operate a home appliance? What kind of cable would you use to charge your devices while traveling overseas? And what's the best cable to use to plug in a portable generator? Cables.com carries a wide variety of cables for any need you could imagine! Whether you're looking to plug in your stereo or a Cisco router, we're sure that we'll have what you need at an unbeatable quality for an excellent price.

Power Cables Based on Your Device

Data Center Power Cords

Many businesses depend on data centers for their operations, and it's important to be sure that the cables powering them are up for the job. Cables.com carries a broad range of data center cables, and we're confident that we have the right one for you. Let's look at a few examples. 

Cables.com stocks IEC 320 C14 to 5-15 Power Cables and adapters. This includes our IEC 320 C14 to 2x NEMA 5-15R Splitter, which features an IEC 60320 C14 male plug and is  rated for 10 amps and 18 awg. 

We also have data center power cords that lock, securing the power supply to your essential electrical equipment like servers and computers.

These are only a few examples of the data center cables in our catalog, so you should be sure to look over all the options before figuring out what cable you need for your own network!

NEMA Power Cables

NEMA-rated power cords meet the standards set by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. Our NEMA Power Cords come in different lengths, sizes, and configurations.  You even have the option of selecting our NEMA 5-15p to C13 PC Power Cords featuring a rocking power switch, as well as locking 10A power cords.  If you're worried about your power cords getting damaged due to cramped spaces necessitating bending cables to fit, you should consider an angled NEMA 5-15p to C13 power cable. 

Our NEMA 620P to IEC320 C19 Power Cords are intended to connect a CPU to a 20A high-voltage wall outlet, UPS or power distribution unit. This cable is built with a heavy-duty jacket and 12awg conductors capable of handling 20 amp heavy loads. 

NEMA 620P to IEC 320 C19 Power Cord

 These are only a few of our NEMA power cables, so be sure to check out the extensive variety of configurations available. 

International Power Cables

Planning to travel overseas? Cables.com has you covered with power and data center cords for several countries, including Australia, Israel, and Taiwan.

Order from Cables.com, and you'll get a reasonably priced option! Many of our cables can even be shipped the same day they're ordered, which means you're more likely to have the cable you need when you need it.
