What kind of connectors do they use for the output? I know that, for
instance, the VAX-11/780 PDU has a bunch of 120V/15A "standard" outlets on
the back... which makes it a great 18-outlet power strip, if you just
replace the power inlet cable.

If they don't have 'standard outlets' on them, they're a bit less useful.
