Bahraini power outlet

Varying different standards and plug types can often be daunting when planning on travelling to a foreign country especially if you've never been there before. The following useful guide tells you exactly what you'll need to power your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation when staying in Bahrain using the 230 volt 50Hz Type G plug outlet, the Bahrainis will use a 13 amp plug for power outlets. If you are travelling to Bahrain from a different region please check that the Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from over-heating when powering up. If you plan to stay in a destination such as Manama we suggest reading the Bahrain Wikipedia page [1] for more details.
