IEC 60320 C7

250 volts
10 Amps

The IEC 60320 C7 is an ungrounded 2 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 2.5 Amps Internationally or 125V and 10 Amps in North America. The C7 mates with a C8 inlet, and is commonly used for laptop power supplies, video game consoles, televisions, and other double-insulated small appliances. This connector is sometimes referred to as a "Figure-8" or "Shotgun" connector due to it's shape. A variation of the C7 exists, sometimes referred to as a C7P or C7 Polarized, although it is not documented in the IEC 60320 standard. The C7P has one square side and one circular side so the connector only mates with the inlet using the correct pin configuration. For applications where the device or power supply is polarized, or is not internally wired to be plugged into a power supply in either orientation, there is the Polarized C7. This feature prevents the connector from being plugged in either orientation. The easiest way to distinguish between the two types is the polarized version will have one side of the connector in the shape of a circle and the other will have rigid corners like a square.
