Complicated combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning to visit a different country especially for the first time traveller. This page has been written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Kindle Fire when you're in Turkmenistan.The following simple guide will show you how to power the Kindle Fire when going to Turkmenistan using their Type C, B or F Turkmen 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When visiting Turkmenistan from another country please make sure your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If the Kindle Fire originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check that your device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overheating when charging it. If you intend on visiting a place like Ashgabat please refer to the Turkmenistan Wikipedia page [1] for more information.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Turkmen power outlet to your Fire. These recommendations assume that you have installed the most recent version of the firmware for the Kindle, however if not we suggest installing the latest Kindle Fire firmware update to make sure you have the most up-to-date fixes for your tablet.
