Different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning on travelling to another country if you've never been there before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare visitors wanting to charge the Jabra Solemate when staying in Belize.If planning a trip to Belize this page contains instructions showing you charging the Jabra Solemate using the Type G, A or B Belizean 110 volt 60Hz power outlets. Most power changes depending on which area you are in so we recommend reading the power supplies and North America page for a full list of countries. If the Jabra Solemate does not power up or charges slowly when travelling to Belize from a different country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally devices which come from a country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) can take longer to charge or won't power up, check that the device is a dual voltage device (you'll find these are usually marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.
