What is the best power charger for a Kindle Fire 1st generation in Syria?

When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel charger for Syria is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Syrians use three different standards of wall outlets (E, C and L) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your Kindle Fire 1st generation supports Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these power chargers plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.
