When packing for a trip it is helpful to know if you can power all your important electronics like mobile phones and laptops when you get there. By not knowing which plug socket is being used in Morocco you could end up either weighing your bags down with unnecessary spare adaptors or bring the wrong power adaptor, leaving you needing to buy or borrow a potentially expensive power adaptor when you arrive which could be incompatible. Varying different region codes and sockets can all be confusing when planning on staying in a new country for the first time traveller. This isn't as complex as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards used throughout the world this article shows exactly what to pick up in advance to power the Kindle Fire in Morocco. These instructions have been written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge the Kindle Fire when you are going to Morocco.If travelling to Morocco these useful instructions show how to power the Kindle Fire using the standard Type E or C 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets, most Moroccans will typically use Type E wall outlets. If travelling to Morocco from a different region make sure the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If your Kindle Fire originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating when powering up. If you are planning on staying in a destination such as Casablanca we recommend reading the Morocco country Wiki page [1] for more indepth information on travelling to the location.

This list of instructions shows you how to connect the Moroccan power outlet to the Fire.
