Israeli power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plug types can all be daunting when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially if you've never visited before. When you are planning a vacation to Israel the following instructions show how to charge the Kindle Fire using the standard M, C or H type Israeli 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets, you will find most Israelis use the Type H plugs in their plug outlets. If travelling to Israel from a different country ensure that the Kindle Fire can be used with a 220v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from over-heating when charging it.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Israeli power outlet to the Kindle Fire. These instructions assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle, if not we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have all the latest features for your device. Go to the Amazon.com site for the Kindle Fire device support [2] for further information.

What is the best travel charger for a Kindle Fire in Israel?

When you are travelling with more than your Kindle Fire and visiting multiple countries then the best travel adapter for Israel to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are three types of power outlets that Israelis use (M, C and H) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your model of Kindle Fire is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times by using one of these types of power adapters, plus compatibility with more power demanding devices like tablets.

This will allow you to charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate power adapters on your Israeli trip or occupying additional wall outlets. Only needing to bring a single travel charger will also keep the overall weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for recharging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on a plane. Due to their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers and using only a single power outlet.

If you travel regularly we suggest buying this type of versatile travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer; the multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries on a daily basis.
