Albanian power outlet

Various combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning to visit a new country, especially to the first time traveller. When you are planning a holiday to Albania the following useful instructions show how to charge your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation by using their standard F or C type Albanian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When travelling to Albania from a different country please double check the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v make sure that the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from being damaged when charging it.

These instructions show how to connect the Albanian power outlet to the tablet and this page refers to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation.

What is the best power adapter for a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation in Albania?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation then the best travel charger for Albania to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. Albanians use two different types of power outlets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster charging times with one of these types of travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices.

Having a four port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy seperate travel chargers on your trip or using up additional power sockets. Because you are only bringing a single international travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage. Because of their versatility these types of chargers can be used back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and phones without using up an additional wall outlet.

If you travel to Albania we suggest searching for an adaptable travel charger of this nature online; the travel charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
