Allow me to help expand your knowledge of American English. Perhaps going forward you could use a dictionary and become more independent as your knowledge grows:
outlet [ out-let, -lit ]
a point on a wiring system at which current is taken to supply electric devices.
Also called outlet box. the metal box or receptacle designed to facilitate connections to a wiring system.
