When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel power adapter for Kyrgyzstan to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. There are two types of plug sockets that Kirghiz use (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 2nd generation supports Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.
