10A at 250V is the same power as 20A at 125V; if your connectors are compatible then it seems that you are safe to use the cable

>>"Simple question. Is it ok to use a 10a 250v power cord in the united states on 110-120v products?:<<
Look on the outer jacket of the cable. Does it give the wire size? For USA power cords it does. Example, 18/3, 16/3, 14/3, 12/3, ect. Good chance the cable is equivalent to 16/3. Might be ok, maybe, for a CDP but I would not recommend it for a preamp and definitely not a power amp. Jmho.
not sure on cable size. i dont have it on me at the moment so i cannot check. its actually for a lite Ah DAC i purchased. the power on the unit was changed to 115v to be used in the US. I just noticed the cable said 10A 250v on it. i didnt *think* it would cause any problems... the power cable really on serves as a *bridge* between the surge protector and the actual unit correct? in addition, i noticed at DIYcable.com the IEC plugs are 15a 250v and these cables are commonly sold for usage in the US i believe.
