Differing combinations of frequencies and region codes can often be daunting when planning on staying in a foreign country to the first time traveller. If you are planning a vacation to Bermuda this page has useful instructions showing how to charge your Kindle Fire using the standard Type B or A 120 volt 60Hz power outlets, Type B power outlets are normally used by a majority of Bermudians. Power supplies will vary from region to region therefore please read our Wikiconnections global power supplies page where you'll find a complete list showing charging devices in different destinations. If the Kindle Fire slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are travelling to Bermuda from another country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally electrical devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts may take longer to charge or won't power up, check the Kindle Fire is a dual voltage device (you'll find these are usually indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use.

These instructions show you how to connect the Bermuda power outlet to your tablet. These instructions assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle Fire, however if you don't visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire firmware update to ensure you have the most up to date fixes for your Kindle Fire.
