How to connect an Anguillan power outlet to a Kindle Fire

Anguillan power outlet

Different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. This page is a simple guide which shows what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire when going to Anguilla by using the standard 110 volt 60Hz Type A Anguillan plug outlet, with the Anguillans using a NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plug for power outlets. Most power sources will change depending on which region you're taking a trip to therefore we suggest that you read our Wikiconnections global power connections list for a full list showing regions and countries. If your Kindle Fire charges slowly or does not power up when travelling to Anguilla from another country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically electrical devices which originate from a different country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts either take longer to charge or won't power up, check your device is dual-voltage (you'll find these are usually indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use.

These instructions show you how to connect the Anguillan power outlet to the Kindle Fire. These recommendations assume that you are using the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle Fire, however if not please visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire OS update which makes sure you have the most up-to-date features for your Kindle.
