No, but it might be the easiest and cheapest way to go about getting
a bare-leads power cord. I've got tons and tons of IEC cables; they
just keep accumulating. On the other hand, I have relatively few
high-quality (e.g. neoprene jacket) leaded power cables and I reserve
those for permanent installations.
But whacking the end off of an iEC cable for a jury rig? Sure,
without even a second thought. They're like wire coat hangers and
safety pins--they breed in the dark.
