    I thought that it was usa type b, but that one has the lower 2 connectors plain shaped and vertical instead of plain shaped and horizontal.

    Same, I would lean towards 6-15P only because it looks like a PC cord. Need some thing like a quarter / pence next to it to be sure. 6-15 is about 3CM 30P is about 5ishCM in diameter.

    You have no idea how mad i was about to get, trying to figure. It is a nema 6-15p, i read distance between the plain shaped connectors is like 18.2mm center to center, and yep, thats the measure so nema 6-15p. You got plenty of different plugs there, i thought type b was the only plug there.

    UK has those randomly scattered around rather than the standard Euro plug... Thankfully I bought an adapter kit that had both before I went. They seem to be phasing it out there though.
