Mongolian power outlet

Differing combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning on travelling to another country especially if you've never been there before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare people wanting to charge the Kindle Fire when staying in Mongolia.If planning a trip to Mongolia this page contains instructions showing you charging the Kindle Fire using the Type E or C Mongolian 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. Most power will change depending on which region you are in so we suggest reading the power supplies and Asia page for a full list of countries. When visiting Mongolia from another region ensure that your Kindle Fire can accept a 240 volt supply. If your Kindle Fire came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

The following instructions show how to connect the Mongolian power outlet to the tablet. This page assumes that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the tablet, however if not we recommend installing the latest Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have the most up to date set of features for your tablet. Go to the manufacturers site at Amazon.com for the Kindle Fire device support [2] for further information.
