Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. These instructions were specifically written to help prepare people wanting to charge their Kindle Fire when they're visiting Bahrain.This page contains step by step instructions demonstrating exactly what you'll need to supply power to your Kindle Fire when you're visiting Bahrain by using a 230 volt 50Hz G Type power outlet, the Bahrainis will use a 13 amp plug for charging. When you are visiting Bahrain from another region please ensure that the Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from overheating when charging it. If you intend on taking a trip to a city such as Manama or Riffa read the Wikipedia page about Bahrain [1] for further details prior to the location.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Bahraini power outlet to your tablet. These instructions assume that you are using the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle, if you don't we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire software update to make sure you have the most up-to-date fixes for your device.
