Hmmm, when I was looking for a cable for my VIC-1001, the standard 'figure 8' power cables (C7) definitely didn't fit. Looking on the wikipedia page the pin spacing for the C7 cable is 8.6mm whereas the C1 cable which I used is 6.6mm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320#Appliance_couplers You would have thought someone would have developed an iphone/android app by now which would allow you take a picture of a plug and redirect you to an online retailer...
