Anguillan power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of frequencies and standards can often be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country especially if you've never been there before. This page has been written to stop you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your Jabra Solemate when staying abroad.If you're planning a holiday to Anguilla the following useful instructions show how to charge your Jabra Solemate by using their standard 110 volt 60Hz A Type Anguillan plug outlet, the Anguillans will use a NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plug for wall outlets. If your Jabra Solemate does not power up or charges slowly when you are visiting Anguilla from another country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which come from a different country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts sometimes take longer to charge or won't power up, check that your device is a dual voltage device (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use. If you intend to stay in an Anguillan city like North Side or The Valley please refer to the Anguilla Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth information.

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'.
