Cook Islands power outlet

When packing for a vacation it can often be helpful to know if you'll be able to use your indispensable electronics when you're there. Without knowing which wall socket is being used you are likely to bring the wrong power charger, leaving you needing to borrow a suitable charger when you're there. Varying complicated region codes and plug types can all be daunting when planning to travel to a different country especially for the first time traveller. This page has simple instructions demonstrating exactly how to charge your Kindle Fire when you're visiting The Cook Islands by using the standard 240 volt 50Hz I Type power outlet. When you are visiting The Cook Islands from a different region please ensure the Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you intend on travelling to a city such as Avarua or Amuri we also recommend reading the The Cook Islands country Wiki page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

The following guide shows how to connect the Cook Islands power outlet to your Fire. These recommendations assume that you are using the most recent version of the OS for the tablet, if you don't please visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire OS update which ensures you have the latest fixes for your Kindle Fire.
