We wanted the look of a standard house wall outlet, but are running off of an inverter with plugs. So how can we do that? All signs pointed to just using unattractive power strip extension cords, and mounting them into the wall. But then we found this replacement appliance cord at Lowe’s with the wires ready to splice into your appliance. The worker at Lowe’s showed us very simply how to connect the wires correctly to a standard house outlet. The green wire goes to the green connector. The white wire goes to the silver connector. The black wire goes to the gold connector. Dark to dark and light to light. Voila! We have 110 volts of power now for our laptop charging station.
