This page contains useful instructions demonstrating how to supply power to the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation when you're travelling to Tajikistan using the Type F or C 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets.

There are two different types of power outlets that Tajikistanis use (F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.
