Various combinations of standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to travel to another country to the first time traveller. These guidelines were specifically written to stop people having to worry if they'll be able to power their Kindle Fire when they're abroad.When you are planning a vacation to Vanuatu the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the Kindle Fire using the standard Type G, C or I 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If travelling to Vanuatu from a different region ensure the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If the Kindle Fire was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from being damaged during charging. If you plan to visit a Vanuatuan city such as Port Vila we recommend reading the Vanuatuan Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information on the location.

These instructions show you how to connect the Vanuatuan power outlet to your Fire. This page assumes you are using the most recent version of the Fire OS operating system for the Fire, however if not visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire update to ensure you have the latest features for your tablet.
