Various combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country especially 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.If you are going to Guyana the following instructions show how to charge the Kindle Fire using the standard G, A, B or D type 220 volt 60Hz wall outlets. If visiting Guyana from a different country ensure that the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

These instructions show how to connect the Guyanese power outlet to your Kindle tablet. This guide assumes that you are using the most recent version of the firmware for the Kindle Fire, however if you don't visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire update which makes sure you have the most up to date fixes for your Kindle.
