Papua New Guinea power outlet

When organizing a holiday it's useful to know if you can use any common electronics such as mobiles and laptops that you'll be bringing along. By not knowing which plug socket is used you are likely to bring the wrong adaptor, therefore leaving you needing to buy a potentially overpriced adaptor when you need to recharge which might not be compatible and cause problems with your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation. Complicated combinations of voltages and sockets can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. If you're visiting Papua New Guinea the following useful instructions show how to charge your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation by using their standard 240 volt 50Hz I Type Papua New Guinea power supply. You'll find power will differ from region to region therefore we suggest reading the Oceania page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Papua New Guinea from a different region please make sure that your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it.
