Syrians use three different types of power outlets (types E, C and L) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by changing the heads. If your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these USB power adapters and additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets.
