SECRET HACK: Instead of using this cable for what it was designed, why not use it to convert some of your extra PC power cables into extension cords? With this adaptor, any desktop or monitor 3-prong power cord can become a regular 110V extension cord. Convenient!


Remember back in the eighties and early nineties, when computers drew power from the wall and monitors drew power from the computers? When desktop power supplies had both male and female 3-prong outlets, one for power in and one for power out?

No? Well, believe it or not, that was a thing, and the DataPro 9229-series cable is a computer power adaptor that harks back to that era. This cable was designed to convert wall-plugging monitors into computer-plugging monitors, because yes, that was desirable behavior back then.

Nowadays, computers draw so much power and monitors do as well, it's highly unlikely that you'll come across any desktop power supply that offers a piggyback power port. And even if you did, we wouldn't recommend using it before doing careful research into the power consumption loads of all the involved devices, lest something go awry.
