If travelling to multiple countries then the best international travel power adapter for Maldives is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [15]. Maldivians use five different types of plug sockets (types G, D, J, K and L) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type G. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your model of Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers, along with additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices. Unlike other travel adapters having a 4 port adapter will also allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power adapters or using up additional wall sockets. By only bringing a single travel charger will keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage.
