What is the name of this style connection?

It seems to be more popular with electrical powered equipment for the Asian market.

  • \$\begingroup\$ It is not "the same as the figure 8 connector". The C7/C8 connector is NOT interchangable with the C6/C6 connector unless you do substantial plastic surgery. \$\endgroup\$ – Richard Crowley Oct 3 '16 at 7:54

Apparently it is an IEC 60320 type connector and is a C5 or C6 depending on if its the plug or socket.
