Equatorial Guinean power outlet

Various combinations of standards and plug types can often lead to confusion when planning on travelling to another country especially to the first time traveller. This step by step guide shows you exactly how to supply power to the Kindle Fire when travelling to Equatorial Guinea by using their standard types E or C 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If travelling to Equatorial Guinea from a different country please ensure that your Kindle Fire can accept a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v double check the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged when charging it. If you are planning on travelling to an Equatorial Guinean place such as Bata please refer to the Equatorial Guinean country entry on wikipedia [1] for more details.

These instructions show how to connect the Equatorial Guinean power outlet to your Kindle tablet. These recommendations assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the tablet, but if not visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire update which makes sure you have all the latest set of features for your device.

What is the best travel charger for a Kindle Fire in Equatorial Guinea?

When you are travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than just your Kindle Fire the best international travel charger for Equatorial Guinea to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two standards of power outlets in Equatorial Guinea (E and C) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your model of Kindle Fire is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these USB power chargers, and compatibility with more power demanding devices like tablets.

Unlike other adapters having a 4 port charger means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring individual power adapters on your trip. Because you are only bringing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage whilst travelling. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional plug socket.

We recommend buying this type of flexible travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer - the travel adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
