Power cord YP-32/YC-20, 1mm², VDE, 3m
IEC 60320-C14/C15, extension, black
Connectors: C14 to C15
X section: 3 x 1mm²
Plug type C14 – Yung-Li Part No YC-32
The appliance coupler IEC 60320-C13 is used to connect equipment that doesn’t produce excessive heat when in use. The maximum pin temperature should not exceed 70° C and the maximum current is 10A.
Plug type C15 (Yung-Li Part No YC-20)
Some electric kettles and similar heat producing household items use a supply cord with a C15 connector, and a matching C16 inlet on the appliance; their temperature rating is 120° C rather than the 70° C of the similar C13/C14 combination. The official designation in Europe for the C15/C16 coupler is a ‘hot condition’ coupler.
These are similar in form to the C13/C14 coupler, except with a ridge opposite the earth in the C16 inlet (preventing a C13 fitting), and a corresponding valley in the C15 connector (which doesn’t prevent it fitting a C14 inlet). For example, an electric kettle cord can be used to power a computer, but an unmodified computer cord cannot be used to power a kettle.
