Looking for a power inverter cable

I bought this auto power inverter a couple of years ago. Worked alright.

I seem to have lost the power cable .. it must have fallen out of the car at some point.

Does anyone know of a source for replacement cables (or should I just buy another inverter)?

Sorry I'm not able to answer your question but was wondering if this is the gadget to convert voltage from 120 to 240(Europe voltage)? Thank you.

This is the gadget to convert 12V DC (ie from a car) to 120V AC (ie power a laptop)

those cables are sold everywhere, you can probably find them at Canadian Tire, Best Buy, The Source, or if you live in Mississauga, Dixie and Matheson.
Thanks

Why would an inverter have an AC input port? LOL. Not sure I would trust an inverter manufacturer that doesn't know AC from DC :D

It could act like a regular power bar in that case.
Plus you have stuff like USB ports to power.

Cmon, that is obviously where the 12v cable goes.

I checked out a few stores. I couldn't find any replacement cables.

The closest I found was for portable electric coolers but the plug was way too large.

I think I'm going to have to break open the case and hard wire (ie solder in) a DC plug and cable.

The source store doesn't have one? Or in an extreme case, can you simply buy another one of those?
I know, you shouldn't have to buy a whole new one. I'm just mentioning the extreme...
