Estonian power outlet

Different combinations of voltages and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on visiting a foreign country to the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of common standards used in the world this article tells you exactly what you'll need in advance to power the Kindle Fire in Estonia. This page has instructions showing you exactly how to charge your Kindle Fire when you're travelling to Estonia using their Type F or C Estonian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are travelling to Estonia from another region please ensure that the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging. If you intend to visit an Estonian destination like Tallinn or Tartu refer to the Estonian Wikipedia page [1] for further details prior to the location.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Estonian power outlet to your tablet. These instructions assume that you are using the most recent version of the operating system for the tablet, if not please visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire update which ensures you have all the latest features for your Kindle.

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

If travelling with more than your Kindle Fire or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for Estonia is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Estonians use two different types of plug sockets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the included plugs. If your Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. This means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring individual power chargers for your trip. Because you are only needing a single international USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage whilst travelling and on hand for charging your Kindle Fire at an airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple smartphones, tablets and e-readers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying a flexible power charger similar to this online, the multipurpose power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
