Various standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to visit another country especially if you've never visited before. If you are staying in Tobago this page has useful instructions showing how to power the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation using the standard types B or A 115 volt 60Hz power outlets, please be aware Type B wall outlets will be used by most Tobagonians. Most power sockets are different depending on which area you travelling to therefore please read our Wikiconnections world power supplies list where you'll find a full list showing charging devices in different destinations. If your Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition tablet 4th generation slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are visiting Tobago from another region then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically electrical devices which originate from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 220 volts) may take longer to charge or won't power up, so check your device is a dual voltage device (normally marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. If you are planning to visit a Tobagonian place such as Scarborough or Queens Bay we also suggest referring to the Tobago Wikipedia web page [1] for more information.
