Varying different combinations of region codes and sockets can often lead to confusion when planning on staying in a different country, especially if you've never visited before. This page has step by step instructions demonstrating exactly what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire when going to Albania using their standard Type F or C 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When travelling to Albania from another country check that the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If the Kindle Fire was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the device 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 whilst powering it up.

The following instructions show how to connect the Albanian power outlet to the Kindle. These instructions assume you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Fire, if not we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire OS update to ensure you have the latest features for your tablet.

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

When you are travelling with more than your Kindle Fire and visiting multiple countries then the best travel adapter for Albania to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two types of power outlets in Albania (F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your type of Kindle Fire supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these types of USB power chargers, and compatibility with more power demanding devices.

Unlike other travel chargers this will allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring multiple power chargers or occupying additional power sockets. By only needing a single international travel charger will help keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling and convenient for charging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on a flight. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets using just a single plug socket.

We recommend searching for a multipurpose power adapter of this nature online. The travel adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world.
