If travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation the best travel power adapter for Senegal is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. Senegalese use four different standards of power outlets (D, C, E and K) and using a power adapter like 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 multiple countries around the world simply by changing the supplied plugs. If your model of Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these types of USB power chargers, and compatibility with more power demanding devices.

Unlike other travel chargers this means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to buy multiple power chargers. By only bringing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional power outlet.

For those travelling frequently we suggest buying this type of versatile travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer; the multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
