If organizing a trip it can be useful to know in advance if you can power all your common devices such as mobile phones or laptop computers at your destination. Without knowing which wall socket to expect you are more likely to bring the wrong power adaptor, meaning needing to purchase a suitable charger when you arrive. Varying different combinations of voltages and sockets can all cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country to the first time traveller. This page has step-by-step instructions telling you exactly how to charge your Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation when you're travelling to Jordan by using their G, B, C, D, F or J type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please note that Type G wall outlets will be used by most Jordanians. When you are visiting Jordan from another region please ensure that the Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v make sure the Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you are planning on taking a trip to places such as Amman or Zarqa we also recommend reading the Jordan Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.
