What type of Xbox 360 is this cord compatible with?

What’s the difference between Xbox 360 and Kinect power cords?

The Xbox Kinect and Xbox 360 power cord differences are significant. The affordable Xbox 360 power adapter actually helps you power up and use your Xbox 360, whereas the Xbox Kinect power cord powers up and connects the Kinect sensor to the Xbox 360. Here are a few more of the differences:

  • Xbox 360 Kinect: a device created to detect motion and let you communicate and use your Xbox 360 using your body as the controller. The Kinect requires a USB power cord in order to connect it to the Xbox 360. This also powers up your Kinect as well.
