Various combinations of standards and plug types can all be daunting when planning on staying in a different country, especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to stop you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Jabra Solemate when you are travelling to Guyana.The following instructions will show you exactly what you'll need to charge the Jabra Solemate when you are travelling to Guyana by using their standard types G, A, B or D 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. Power sockets will change depending on which region you're in therefore we recommend that you read the Wikiconnections travel power supplies list for a full list of destinations. When visiting Guyana from another country check that the Jabra Solemate can accept a 240v supply. If the Jabra Solemate was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts ensure your Jabra Solemate is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating during charging.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.
