    I'm in America. Outlets don't look like this. Can't tell if the above outlet which I have is type E or F and not sure if America has type A or B. What product do I buy on amazon to deal with this?

    In the US we use type A & B but our line voltage is 120 VAC where as your type E & F are for 250 VAC. Fairly sure you 250 volt stuff won't work on 120 volts.
