Jordanian power outlet

If organizing a vacation to Jordan it's helpful to know if you'll be able to power your vital electronics like mobiles or laptop computers that you are bringing along. But, without knowing which power socket is being used in Jordan you are likely to bring the wrong power adaptor, therefore leaving you needing to borrow a potentially overpriced power adaptor on arrival. Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country, especially for the first time traveller. When going to Jordan these useful instructions show powering your Kindle Fire 1st generation using their G, B, C, D, F or J type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, you'll discover most Jordanians will typically use the Type G plugs in their power outlets. When you are travelling to Jordan from another region please ensure that the Kindle Fire 1st generation can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Kindle Fire 1st generation was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v double check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging.

These instructions show you how to connect the Jordanian power outlet to the Kindle Fire First Generation and this page refers to the Kindle Fire 1st generation. Visit the Amazon page on WikiConnections for the full product range of the latest Amazon Kindle Fire tablets. This Kindle Fire model can be recognised by a power button on the bottom and a Kindle logo on the back. These instructions assume that you are using version 6.3.4 Fire operating system or greater for the Kindle Fire 1st generation, if you don't we suggest installing the latest Kindle Fire 1st generation OS update to make sure you have all the latest set of features for your Kindle.

If you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel charger for Jordan is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [17]. Jordanians use six different standards of wall outlets (G, B, C, D, F and J) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your model of Kindle Fire 1st generation can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power chargers, and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.
