If you are travelling with more than your Kindle Fire HD 6 4th generation and visiting multiple countries the best international travel charger for Yemen to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Yemenis use three different types of power outlets (G, A and D) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by changing the plugs over. If your Kindle Fire HD 6 4th generation can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters and additional support for certain power hungry devices. This will also allow you to power more than one device at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers or occupying additional wall sockets. Only packing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers without using up an additional plug socket.

We recommend buying this type of flexible travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer - the travel adapter illustrated is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
