Seychellois power outlet

If planning a vacation to Seychelles it can often be helpful to know in advance if you'll be able to charge all your devices when you're there. Without knowing which power socket to expect you are likely to bring the wrong adaptor, therefore needing to buy or borrow a suitable adaptor when you're there which might not be compatible and cause problems with your Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation. Differing combinations of voltages and sockets can often be daunting when planning on travelling to a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. If you're visiting Seychelles these instructions show powering the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation by using their standard 240 volt 50Hz G Type Seychellois plug outlet, with the Seychellois using a 13 amp plug for power outlets. Power sockets vary depending on which country you are travelling to so we recommend reading the list of World power supplies for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Seychelles from a different country please double check the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation can accept a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it. If you're planning on taking a trip to a Seychellois place such as Victoria read the Seychelles Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth information.
