When travelling to multiple countries and bringing along more than your Kindle Fire 2nd generation then the best travel charger for East Timor to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are four different types of power outlets that East Timorese use (E, C, F and I) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the heads. If your Kindle Fire 2nd generation can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices.
