AC 2 prong power cable

I lost my power cable to my battery jump starter and the part that plugs into it is a square cutout somewhat like this but a non-polarized plug that goes into the unit.

Where can I find these?

That one is non-polarized, or are you looking for a polarized connector? What is the manufacture/model?

The first step will be to correctly identify the " square cutout " as to what type of receptacle it is . Hopefully it is a NEMA standard receptacle .
As long as it is not a proprietary receptacle , I have no doubt you can find the power cord at »www.digikey.com/

Have you tried getting the cord from the manufacturer of the charger ?
If nothing else try to get a good closeup picture of the receptacle with a good ruler held up to it .

If you are lucky it is a standard IEC inlet.

Hopefully it matches one of these:
»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320

In that case obtaining a replacement ought to be easy.

This would work:

It's just a standard 1-15 plug with some space constraints.

Thanks, I picked up one of these like 3 years ago but never thought about this cable.

Also a locally available 2 conductor extension cord should work. It doesn't matter if it's polarized or not since the plug isn't.
