What is the best travel charger for recharging a Kindle Fire in Macedonia?

When travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire or visiting more than one country the best travel charger for Macedonia is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Macedonians use two different types of power outlets (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your Kindle Fire supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters and additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port charger means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate power adapters or occupying additional power sockets. By only packing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when you return home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying this type of flexible travel charger at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
