Bought a new Samsung Q60R TV. The power cord is rated at 7A 125V and 5 foot long , which is a bit shorter than what I need. I can find the same ratings with a straight plug, but I was hoping to get with with a 90 degree as what came with the TV.

I can find a 10 foot 125V 10A with a 90 ending. Would that work without hurting the TV? I'm guessing that the higher amp rating just means a bigger gauge wire.

It should. I noticed it’s non-polarized - is that the same as what came with the TV?

Yes. Non-polarized is two round circles (figure 8). Polarized is a circle and a square.


BIL sez it's good size the higher amp rating means a thicker wire, which isn't bad when you are running a longer distance.

You’re good to go. Given how many amps the TV pulls (probably a max of 1-2 at the absolute most) the thickness really doesn’t matter.
