Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on visiting a foreign country to the first time traveller. This page has step-by-step instructions telling you exactly how to charge your Jabra Solemate Mini when you're travelling to Bangladesh by using their G, C, D or K type 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When visiting Bangladesh from another country please ensure the Jabra Solemate Mini can be used with a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts ensure that the Jabra Solemate Mini is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from over-heating during charging.

Ensure you have version 1.14 or greater of the Jabra Solemate Mini firmware, visit the official Jabra Solemate Mini support site [2] to download the latest version. You can switch off the default 'Connected' and other announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate Mini until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the Jabra Solemate Mini in Bangladesh?

If travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are four types of wall outlets in Bangladesh (types G, C, D and K) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your type of Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus support for more power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other chargers having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to buy individual travel adapters or using up additional wall outlets. By only packing a single travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage. Due to their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple smartphones, tablets and e-readers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying a versatile travel adapter like this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
