Various combinations of standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to visit another country if you've never been there before. This page contains step by step instructions which shows exactly what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation when you are visiting Syria using their standard Type E, C or L 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power sockets change depending on which area you are travelling to therefore we recommend reading the Asia page for a full list of countries. When you are visiting Syria from another region please check that your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation can accept a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts double check your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up.

If you are travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation the best international travel charger for Syria is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11].
