Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country, especially if you've never been there before. This page contains instructions telling you how to supply power to the Kindle Fire when you're travelling to Angola using the 220 volt 50Hz Type C wall outlet, the Angolans will use a Europlug for power outlets. If you are visiting Angola from another country ensure that your Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged when charging it.
