Long story short I somehow lost my power cord that connects my power supply to the wall. Not wanting to wait until I find the thing I found my TV had the same type of sockets as my power supply had. There was a label on the cord that specified it to be "10A and 125V." My PS manual said that the PS was rated at 10A and 100-240V. I was wondering if it would be safe to plug this into my computer even if it has low and high surge protection.

 

EDIT: I'm currently using the cord and it is working fine, still wondering if there is anything dangerous by doing this

The specs for that cord are the same as the one from your PSU, I don't see any problem.

Thanks, so far I haven't seen problems so I guess it's ok

Watts divided by Volts equals Amps.

 

Let's take a 500W PSU, divide it by 120, it equals 4.16A.

 

The cord in question is rated at 125V @  10A, you're good to go. :thumbup2:
