Liberian power outlet

Complicated standards and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning on staying in a new country to the first time traveller. This page is a guide showing you what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire when staying in Liberia by using their B, A,C, E or F type Liberian 240 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are travelling to Liberia from another region please ensure the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If your Kindle Fire originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overloading when charging it.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Liberian power outlet to your Fire. These recommendations assume that you have installed the most recent version of the firmware for the Kindle, however if not we suggest installing the latest Kindle Fire firmware update to make sure you have the most up-to-date fixes for your tablet.
