Bangladeshis use four different types of plug sockets (G, C, D and K) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your Kindle Fire HD 6 4th generation is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power chargers plus support for certain power demanding devices. Unlike other chargers having a four port charger will also allow you to charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to buy individual travel adapters on your trip to Bangladesh or occupying additional power outlets.

Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones without using up an additional wall outlet.
