Turkmen power outlet

Complicated combinations of voltages and sockets can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country for the first time traveller. This page contains a simple guide demonstrating exactly what you'll need to power your Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation when staying in Turkmenistan using the types C, B or F 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. You'll find power will vary from region to region therefore we suggest reading the Asia page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Turkmenistan from a different country please check that the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from over-heating whilst powering it up.

These instructions show how to connect the Turkmen power outlet to the tablet and this page refers to the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation, not other tablets in the Kindle Fire product line. We recommend visiting the Amazon page on WikiConnections to see the full list of the latest Amazon Kindle Fire, Fire HD and Fire HDX tablets. You can recognise the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation by the volume and power buttons on the side and the Amazon logo on the back of the tablet.
