This US NEMA5-15P 3 pin mains cable is terminated with an IEC C13 fully moulded connector. Our 2US-C13/14AWG is fully moulded on thicker than the standard 18AWG or 0.824mm², this mains cord is on 14AWG which works out to 2.08mm², this US 3 pin power cable is produced using SJT black flex 3 core mains cable. This increased cable rating and size means this is more robust than standard USA power cords. This US mains lead would be great for custom manufactured assemblies shipping to the states which needs a robust cable. For a cheaper alternative have a look at our 2US-C13 which is rated at 18AWG.
