Differing combinations of standards and voltages can often cause confusion when planning to visit another country, especially if you've never visited before. When you're visiting Tajikistan this page has useful instructions showing how to charge your Kindle Fire by using the standard F or C type 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. You will discover most power sources vary regionally therefore please read our Wikiconnections world power sockets guide for a full list of regions and countries. If you are visiting Tajikistan from a different country please ensure that your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If the Kindle Fire was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you intend on staying in a place like Dushanbe we also recommend reading the Tajikistan Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information.

The following page shows you how to connect the Tajikistani power outlet to the Kindle tablet. These instructions assume that you have installed the most recent version of the firmware for the Kindle Fire, however if you don't visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire update to ensure you have the latest set of features for your tablet. For further information go to the Amazon website for the Kindle Fire device support [2] .

What is the best power charger for recharging a Kindle Fire in Tajikistan?

When travelling to more than one country and bringing along more than just your Kindle Fire the best international travel charger for Tajikistan is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two standards of power outlets in Tajikistan (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by switching the heads over. If your Kindle Fire supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these types of USB power chargers along with additional support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack individual travel adapters for your trip or occupying additional wall sockets. By only packing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for charging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on a flight. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional wall outlet.

For those travelling on a regular basis we suggest buying this type of flexible travel adapter at an electronics retailer, the power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world.

Alternative travel adapter for Tajikistan

The 4 port USB travel charger is the most compact option for travellers from any country wanting to charge devices via USB, however for those also wanting to use their domestic plugs these power converters provide larger but more versatile solutions. All 3 power converters offer surge protection which is crucial when visiting counties with unreliable power grids to prevent damage to any connected devices from voltage spikes. These travel converters come supplied with interchangeable type C, I and G plugs which cover Europe, America, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan, China and over 150 destinations:

  • BESTEK Portable International Travel Voltage Converter - The BESTEK travel adaptor has 4 USB charging ports with 3 AC power outlets and is the most popular compact power adapter for travellers originating from America going to Tajikistan.
  • ORICO Traveling Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip - Similarly having 4 USB ports but only 2 AC power outlets the travel adapter from Orico is also aimed at travellers from North America using type B plugs. This is a much more cost effective alternative to the BESTEK with only 1 less AC outlet at almost half price.
  • BESTEK International USB Travel Power Strip - This power strip has just 2 AC outlets but offers a more generous 5 USB charging ports. This versatile power strip is compatible with both American plugs and popular plug types A, D,E/F, G, H, I, L and N making it perfect for a majority of travellers from around the world visiting Tajikistan. [8] [AD]
