12 VDC Connectors?

Anyone here seen replacement plugs resembling these:

Male/plug:


Female/receptacle:


I need the male portion, have a portable 12 VDC heater/cooler that is 100% dependent on this for connection to a power source.

TIA!

J W

CarringB that looks about as perfect a match as can be----visually anyway. I'll have to visit a local Ace Hardware store to see if it fits.

The dimensions given in the description mention 1/2", center-to-center on my pins is closer to 1/4". Worth a try anyway..........

If anyone else has seen something like this in 12 VDC please chime in!

Sure looks like the AC connector cord for my Lenovo laptop power supply would be close.

I measured the pin openings - 8.5 mm on centers.

Body of plug is 8 mm x 16 mm. Cut off the AC plug and it might work if other dimensions work. Toshiba laptops have similar plugs but the housing is squarish on one of the plugs.

Those 2 conductor modular power cords are called "shaver cords"....they are for 110VAC...at least the one 1der is displaying....


The one JWA is displaying is clearly for DC...you can see the polarity marking on the overmold...and the socket and cord are keyed for polarity...

JWA , I haven't been able to identify your exact power cord.

The cord shown by 1der is a NEMA IEC 320 C7 (non-polarized) power cord (round both sides)

The other cord mentioned is a NEMA IEC 320 C7 (polarized) (one side square one side round )

Here is a link to a power cord guide listed by country , it may helpful to locate your exact cord end .

Excellent link jacktuppvan!


The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) 320 standard defines the interfaces for modular power cords and power inlets. The power inlets are the chassis mount female sockets with male pins that the cord plugs into.

Good gravy youse guys are simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Looking around my own house I found several low voltage power adapters that have similar plugs but as expected none were/are an exact match. (Also contacted the original seller for replacement parts, still waiting a reply from them.) Thanks for inspiring me to look more "locally" aka inside my own place.

It makes sense Jack's RoadPro part would/could be the perfect fit as the needed cord fits a 12 VDC portable combo heater/cooler of the vehicle type: https://www.equalizerfusion.com/Prod...uctDetail/1434 Using the RoadPro number as a search parameter there's a plethora of similar cords available.

Originally bought to keep my work materials warm during the winter have recently begun using it to cool drinks during the summer months---it works amazing. Being a bit anal and "needing" replacement parts long before they're really really necessary I hope to have one at the ready.

Thanks again Guys & Gals----life savers ya'all are!
