Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country if you've never visited before. These instructions were specifically written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge your Kindle Fire when you're abroad.This page contains step by step instructions telling you exactly how to charge your Kindle Fire when you're travelling to Kuwait by using the standard Type G or C 240 volt 50Hz power outlets. If travelling to Kuwait from another country please check that your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If your Kindle Fire originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from over-heating during charging. If you are planning on visiting a place like Kuwait City we also suggest referring to the Kuwait country Wiki page [1] for more indepth details on visiting the area.

The following guide shows how to connect the Kuwaiti power outlet to your Fire. These recommendations assume that you are using the most recent version of the OS for the tablet, if you don't visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire software update which ensures you have the latest fixes for your device.

When you are travelling with more than your Kindle Fire then the best travel charger for Kuwait is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Kuwaitis use two different types of plug sockets (G and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by switching the heads over. If your model of Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB power chargers plus support for more power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other travel chargers having a four port charger will also allow you to charge multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power adapters on your trip to Kuwait.
