The right angle permits one to power devices in very tight spaces like server racks and communications closets. This power cord fits most computers, monitors, printers and various other devices. The cables ends are NEMA 5-15P (Wall Socket) and C13 (Computer/Monitor). It is rated for up to 10 AMPs. If you need a replacement computer or monitor power cord designed for tight spaces, this is likely the cable you need. These cables do carry other uses, such as larger laser printers and more industrial equipment such as embroidery machines. Please consult your manual to verify the C13 connector, your equipment would have a C14 socket.
