Bosnian power outlet

Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to stay in another country, especially for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of common standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what to buy in advance to charge your Kindle Fire in Bosnia. When you're going to travel to Bosnia the following instructions show charging your Kindle Fire using their Type F or C Bosnian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power sources will change regionally so please read the Wiki Connections global power connections page for a full list showing regions. If travelling to Bosnia from another country please ensure the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check your Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it.

These instructions show you how to connect the Bosnian power outlet to the Kindle Fire. These recommendations assume you have installed the most recent version of the firmware for the tablet, if you don't visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire software update to make sure you have the most up-to-date features for your Kindle Fire.

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

If travelling with more than your Kindle Fire and visiting multiple countries the best travel charger for Bosnia is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two different standards of power outlets in Bosnia (F and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your type of Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel chargers or using up additional wall sockets. By only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage and convenient for recharging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on the plane. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers with only a single wall outlet.

If you travel frequently we recommend searching for an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
