I have a Toshiba Qosmio X70-AST3GX laptop with a power cord connector on the right side of all places.  The cord forms a protruding bend when I try to position it away from my mouse action.  I am seeking a right angle power cord adapter that I can use to make the power connection more flush with the laptop.  Even a little bit helps cause my mouse keeps bumping into the cord.  Anyboyd recommend a site where I might find such a thing? I don't see it on Toshiba's web site.

The plug may be a Kycon four pin plug.  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_connector#Snap_and_lock_DC_power_connectors and the photo there.  Don't quote or hold me to that though.

Haven't found a right angle adaptor for that though.

You could try https://www.lindelectronics.com/

Their server is playing up for me.  

They do make custom cables and some of these are right angle adaptors and they may support the Toshiba Qosmio X505 - their website seems to show this, but again their server is not responding to me so I can't confirm - which seems to have the same plug as yours (see http://www.amazon.com/X70-ABT3G22-X70-AST3GX1-X70-ABT2G22-PA3546U-1ACA-PA3673U-1AC3/dp/B004G7IMP8).

I looked first of all for a docking station that would fit, and possibly reroute the power to a new position, but haven't found a compatible one yet.

However, would a laptop stand help, by raising the power connection slightly?

Is your mouse wireless?  That may help too

I have a wireless mouse yes.  But I am not interested in anything other than the right angle adapter. I have seen them for many connections, just not the 4 pin.

I checked out the Lindelectronics site.  No joy there.  They do power supplies for your Toshiba but no right angle adaptors.  They do have right angle adaptors for two pin power supplies which isn't what you want.

Google isn't showing anything and I am beginning to suspect that there isn't any type of plug for what you are looking for.

Unfortunately I agree with you that it is a condition I will have to adapt to myself.
