What type of outlet goes outside?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
I want to put an outlet outside near my patio.

Could you tell me what kind I would need?
You need a water proof outside box. It looks like a big plastic box with a clear plastic bubble. There are hinges on the top so you could swing the clear part up and plug in a device then close the lid. There are small slots on the bottom to let the cord out when plugged in.
Inside it would be a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt) type receptacle.
