Guadeloupe power outlet

Various combinations of voltages and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country for the first time traveller. The following instructions tells you exactly what you'll need to power your Kindle Fire when travelling to Guadeloupe using the Type D, C or E Guadeloupe 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power sockets will vary depending on which area you are travelling to so we recommend reading the power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. When you are travelling to Guadeloupe from another country ensure that your Kindle Fire can accept a 240 volt supply. If your Kindle Fire was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts make sure that your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you intend to stay in a city like Les Abymes or Basse-Terre please refer to the Guadeloupe country page on Wikipedia [1] for more indepth information.

These instructions show how to connect the Guadeloupe power outlet to the Fire. This page assumes that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the tablet, however if you don't we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire update which ensures you have the most up-to-date fixes for your device. For more information go to the Amazon website for the Kindle Fire device support [2] .

What is the best power adapter for a Kindle Fire in Guadeloupe?

When you are travelling to more than one country and bringing along more than your Kindle Fire the best international travel adapter for Guadeloupe is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are three standards of wall outlets that Guadeloupians use (D, C and E) 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 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied plugs over. If your Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these types of travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices. This will also allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to bring individual power adapters for your Guadeloupe trip. 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 the airport or on your flight. Due to their versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones, tablets and speakers without using up an additional wall outlet.

For those travelling to Guadeloupe we recommend buying this type of versatile power adapter online. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
