P.S. Is there a way to reverse engineer this item, cable wise, so that I am using the proper 125v @ 20A or is this just a mistake to have currently? I am trying to configure it to use it for selling small goods and it seems that this cable is getting in the way. The hardware is not Open Source, i.e. obviously. But! They have some download sections for the load cell in question (not too reversed engineered so far as I can tell).
That appears to be a routine NEMA 1-15 to IEC320-C7 power cable. Similar items are in stock here. Current ratings for such products and their corresponding (-C8) appliance inlets vary depending on context, but in general the IEC320-C7/C8 interconnect system is best suited for low-power/low cost applications, and I would not recommend it for loads that draw more than 2.5A.
If the forgoing is not responsive to your inquiry, I would kindly ask for clarification of your precise questions.
A) NEMA1-15 plugs are usable in the US electrical system. Holes are optional, though useful for manufacturing & assembly purposes.
B) NEMA1-15 plugs are not typically used in China
C) It’s not obvious what “TCS transcell” refers to. Please remember that it’s hard to read minds from this side of the screen.
P.S. This is the data regarding the link I posted from the Phino Site:

Hello…the reason I was thinking this particular power cord was for Chinese use in their AC systems was b/c of the 250v @ 10A listed on the Phino power cord I currently hold. It is two prong. Yes.
I understand that the power cord their company sells is $12.00. I found this online. The company, local US based in TX, stated to me via email that the cord I hold works for the Transcell TCS-60lb counting scale.
Thank you for making me understand the differences in a weighing scale and a digital scale. I will read over the items hopefully sooner than later so I can get a real feel for what I am typing.
P.S. The cord is a 250v @ 10A cord. At least it states this voltage and amperage on the cord. It also has a 2.5A rating embossed on the plastic. It fooled me. I was not trying to use what the cord has embossed on it as a way to save me funds but it is good to know that is available too!
Sir, do you know why this specific cord has embossed 250v @ 10A and then on the other end 250v @ 2.5A?
It is really too much to understand. I have not done further investigation but I think my dealings w/ the companies of this cord and the weighing/counting scale just ended up w/ me being ramrodded into purchasing items. So, I kind of disregarded what they said in general.
They are not polarized b/c of the internally isolated adapter. It seems that this method of Neutral and Hot lines in the power cord seemed to be what you guys have been telling me it is currently, i.e. the NEMA to IEC.
It shows the 250v in the NEMA connector link but my house runs on 125v only. This shows the old outlet:
