If travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your Kindle Fire 1st generation then the best international travel charger for Mozambique to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are three types of power outlets in Mozambique (F, C and M) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the included plugs over. If your Kindle Fire 1st generation is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these USB travel chargers along with additional support for more power hungry devices. Unlike other travel adapters this means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring multiple power chargers on your Mozambican trip or occupying additional wall sockets.
