What is the best travel charger for the Jabra Solemate in East Timor?

If travelling with more than just your Jabra Solemate or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for East Timor is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. East Timorese use four different types of plug sockets (types E, C, F and I) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the included plugs. If your Jabra Solemate supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. This means you can power more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel chargers for your East Timor trip.
