Samsung TV Extension Power cord


I need to buy a 15' power cord for my new Samsung TV with an L-shape that plugs into the TV.
Where can I find that?

"L" shaped like this?

That is on this site:

But if this is it, they are pretty common. Any decent electronics store or department should have them.

Search around online (Amazon and Newegg would be good places to look) for "IEC" cords. That's the name of the standard power connector on the TV.

monoprice, radioshack, partsexpress. Also, you are better locating a outlet nearer to the tv, than run a 15 foot cord.

Agreed. Pretty sure the code stating an outlet every 6' are to prevent people from running 15' extension cords to their tv's.

There is no such code requiring an outlet every 6 feet.

Yeah, that's the old one I posted as well.. I could have swore I read some where that they did change it to every 6' in the 2011 update.. I couldn't find it though.. And I'm not paying to download it. I gave up looking. So I guess it's still the same..

And I suppose you install counter top receptacles every 2' as well.

Quote:
(1) Spacing. Receptacles shall be installed such that no
point measured horizontally along the floor line in any wall
space is more than 1.8 m (6 ft) from a receptacle outlet.
Can you tell me where it says that outlets have to be spaced 6' apart?

You won't find the change to every 6'. It was not changed.
