Can the Kindle Fire 2nd generation be used in Mozambique?

Yes, you can connect a Kindle Fire 2nd generation to a Mozambican power outlet by using the correct power adaptor.

What is the best power adapter for a Kindle Fire 2nd generation in Mozambique?

If you are travelling to multiple countries then the best travel power adapter for Mozambique is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Mozambicans use three different standards of power outlets (types F, C and M) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by changing the heads over. If your type of Kindle Fire 2nd generation supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of power adapters and additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other chargers having a 4 port charger will allow you to charge multiple devices at the same time without needing to buy individual travel chargers on your Mozambican trip. Only packing a single international travel charger will also keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage while travelling. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers with just a single wall outlet.

If you travel on a regular basis we suggest searching for this type of flexible power adapter at your preferred electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
