Differing combinations of voltages and region codes can often cause confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. This page was specifically written to prevent you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge the Jabra Solemate abroad.If travelling to Seychelles the following instructions show how to charge the Jabra Solemate by using the 240 volt 50Hz G Type Seychellois power outlet, the Seychellois will use a 13 amp plug for power outlets. If you are visiting Seychelles from a different region please double check your Jabra Solemate can be charged using a 240v supply. If your Jabra Solemate came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overloading when powering up. If you intend on staying at a Seychellois city such as Victoria refer to the Seychellois Wikipedia web page [1] for further details.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.

What is the best power charger for recharging the Jabra Solemate in Seychelles?

If travelling to multiple countries then the best travel adapter for Seychelles is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [6].

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the included heads. If your type of Jabra Solemate supports Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these travel chargers along with additional support for more power hungry devices.

Having a four port adapter will also allow you to power more than one device at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers or occupying additional power sockets. By only needing to bring a single travel charger will also keep the weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage and suitable for charging your Jabra Solemate at an airport or on the flight. Due to their versatility these types of travel adapters can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets and phones with just a single wall outlet.
