Monacan power outlet

Varying different standards and voltages can often be daunting when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. This page is a step by step guide demonstrating how to charge your Kindle Fire in Monaco using the standard D, C, E or F type 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, you'll find most Monacans typically use Type D wall outlets. If visiting Monaco from a different country please ensure that your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts check your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from over-heating during charging.

These instructions show how to connect the Monacan power outlet to your Kindle Fire. These recommendations assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle, if not please visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire update to ensure you have the most up to date fixes for your Kindle.
