Cameroonian power outlet

Different standards and plug types can often be daunting when planning to visit a new country, especially if you've never been there before. If you're visiting Cameroon these instructions show how to supply power to the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation by using their standard E or C type Cameroonian 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. You will discover that power will vary from region to region therefore we suggest reading the Africa page for a complete list of regions and countries. When visiting Cameroon from another region ensure your Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you're planning on staying at a destination such as Douala we recommend reading the Wikipedia entry about Cameroon [1] for more details.

This guide shows how to connect the Cameroonian power outlet to the Forth Generation Kindle Fire and refers to the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation, not other tablets in the Kindle Fire product line. Please ensure these instructions relate to your exact Kindle Fire, visit the Amazon page on WikiConnections to see the full series of the latest Amazon Kindle Fire, Fire HD and Fire HDX tablets.
