Macanese power outlet

Complicated combinations of voltages and standards can all be confusing when planning to travel to a different country to the first time traveller. This page has been specifically written to prevent people worrying if they can charge their Kindle Fire abroad.The following simple instructions will show you exactly how to power the Kindle Fire when travelling to Macau by using the standard Type G, D, F or M 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please note that Type G wall outlets will be normally used by most Macanese. Most power supplies will vary from region to region therefore we suggest that you read our Wiki Connections world power supplies list where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different destinations. If you are travelling to Macau from a different country check your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If your Kindle Fire came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts ensure that the Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from overheating when charging it. If you plan on staying in a Macanese destination like Macau we suggest referring to the Macau country page on wikipedia.org [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

These instructions show you how to connect the Macanese power outlet to the Kindle. This guide assumes you have installed the most recent version of the firmware for the Kindle, but if not please visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire software update which makes sure you have the most up-to-date features for your tablet.
