Various region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. When visiting Nauru the following instructions show powering your Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation using their 240 volt 50Hz I Type power outlet. When you are travelling to Nauru from a different region check that your Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v check that your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from overloading when powering up.
