Differing frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country, especially if you've never been there before. When travelling to Seychelles this page has useful instructions showing you how to charge the Kindle Fire 2nd generation using their 240 volt 50Hz G Type power outlet, the Seychellois will use 13 amp plugs for power outlets. When you are visiting Seychelles from a different country check that your Kindle Fire 2nd generation can accept a 240 volt supply. If the Kindle Fire 2nd generation originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you intend to stay at a Seychellois destination like Victoria or Anse Etoile we suggest referring to the wikipedia.org page about Seychelles [1] for more indepth details on travelling to the area.
