But, without knowing which wall socket to expect you may end up either bringing unnecessary adaptors or pack the wrong adaptor, meaning needing to buy or borrow a potentially expensive power adaptor when you arrive. Complicated standards and voltages can often cause confusion when planning to visit another country, especially to the first time traveller. However this isn't as complex as it appears, with only a handful of different types of plug sockets used in the world this article tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power the Kindle Fire in Seychelles. This page contains step by step instructions which shows exactly what you'll need to supply power to the Kindle Fire when travelling to Seychelles by using their 240 volt 50Hz Type G Seychellois power outlet, the Seychellois will use a 13 amp plug for charging.
