Varying different region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. This page was written to prevent visitors having to worry if they'll be able to charge the Kindle Fire when they're travelling to Bulgaria.The following useful guide tells you exactly what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire when you're in Bulgaria using the Type F or C Bulgarian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Bulgaria from another country check that the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Kindle Fire came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v ensure that your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you intend to stay in a place like Sofia or Plovdiv please refer to the Bulgaria Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth information.

The following instructions show you how to connect the Bulgarian power outlet to your Fire. These recommendations assume you are using the most recent version of the OS for the Kindle Fire, if not visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire software update which makes sure you have all the latest fixes for your Kindle Fire.

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

If you are travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire the best international travel charger for Bulgaria to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two types of power outlets that Bulgarians use (types F and C) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your type of Kindle Fire supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these USB power adapters and additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

Unlike other adapters having a four port adapter will allow you to power more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack multiple power adapters. Only needing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage and on hand for recharging your Kindle Fire at an airport or on the flight. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets with just a single wall outlet.

We recommend buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
