Fijian power outlet

If organizing a trip to Fiji it can be useful to know if you'll be able to charge your common electrical devices like cell phones and laptop computers that you'll be bringing along. But, without knowing which wall socket is used in Fiji you are likely to bring the wrong power charger, therefore having to purchase a suitable adaptor when you're there. Complicated standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to visit another country if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of standards being used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the Kindle Fire . If you are going to Fiji these instructions show how to power your Kindle Fire by using the 240 volt 50Hz Type I Fijian plug outlet. If travelling to Fiji from a different country ensure that your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from overheating when powering up.

These instructions show how to connect the Fijian power outlet to your Kindle Fire. These instructions assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle tablet, if not we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have the latest features for your tablet.
