Varying different standards and plug types can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country for the first time traveller. This page contains instructions telling you how to supply power to the Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation when you're travelling to Senegal using the types D, C, E or K 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets.

If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire HD 7 2nd generation is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged when charging it.
