Looks British?

If so, you need something to convert 240 to 120v and then an adapter to convert the plug. If you look on the side of the device, it will give a voltage range or just a voltage. Many computer adapters work 120 to 240v and do not require an inverter if so, it would only need a plug to make it fit.

Try Amazon's website but change the country to England and then search for a travel adapter.

Looks like a 240V 20A plug there. Window air conditioner, right? Unfortunately, you can't plug it into the outlet in the second picture under any circumstances. It may require more than twice as much power as that outlet can provide. There is no adapter capable of fixing that problem. You'll need a dedicated 240V 20A circuit to run that thing.

First, let me thank everyone for their comments.

@mpoulton: yes, that's exactly it. it's an air conditioner I'm trying to connect to a timed outlet. I have an old model air conditioner and it runs constantly.
