Complicated combinations of frequencies and standards can all be daunting when planning to visit a new country, especially if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power your Kindle Fire . These instructions have been specifically written to prepare travellers wanting to power their Kindle Fire when staying in Luxembourg.When you are planning a holiday to Luxembourg this page contains useful instructions showing charging the Kindle Fire by using their standard F or C type Luxembourg 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. You will find power is different from region to region therefore we suggest reading the World power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Luxembourg from a different country please double check the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Kindle Fire was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check that the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it.

This guide shows you how to connect the Luxembourg power outlet to the Kindle. These recommendations assume you are using the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle, but if you don't please visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire OS update which makes sure you have the most up-to-date set of features for your Kindle Fire.
