When travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your Jabra Solemate Mini then the best travel charger for Turkmenistan to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. Turkmens use three different types of power outlets (types C, B and F) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the supplied plugs over. If your Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these USB travel chargers, plus additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other adapters this will allow you to charge multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack multiple power adapters or occupying additional wall outlets.

Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones with just a single wall outlet.
