Differing combinations of standards and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially to the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used in the world this article shows exactly what you'll need in advance to charge the Jabra Solemate in Paraguay. When you're planning a vacation to Paraguay these instructions show charging the Jabra Solemate using the 220 volt 50Hz C Type Paraguayan power outlet, with the Paraguayans using a Europlug for wall outlets. Power sockets change from region to region so please read the Wiki Connections global power supplies guide for a complete list showing charging devices in different regions and countries. When visiting Paraguay from another region ensure the Jabra Solemate can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage 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'.
