What is the best power charger for a Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation in Israel?

If you are travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for Israel is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Israelis use three different types of plug sockets (M, C and H) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by switching the included heads over. If your model of Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these power chargers, along with additional compatibility with more power demanding devices. Having a 4 port charger means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring individual power chargers for your Israeli trip or occupying additional power outlets. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage while travelling. Due to their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used when you return home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional wall outlet.
