When visiting Iran from another country make sure the Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overloading when powering up. If you plan to visit a place like Tehran or Mashhad we recommend reading the wikipedia entry about Iran [1] for further information.

When travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation or visiting more than one country the best travel charger for Iran is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. Iranians use two different types of power outlets (F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster charging times with one of these types of travel adapters and additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring seperate power adapters or using up additional power sockets. By only needing to bring 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. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when you return home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying this type of flexible travel charger at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
