Varying different frequencies and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to stay in another country if you've never been there before. When you are visiting The Sudan the following useful instructions show how to power your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation by using their types D or C 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power will change depending on which region you are in so we recommend reading the power supplies and Africa page for a full list of countries. When visiting The Sudan from another country ensure the Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation can be used with a 240 volt supply.
