Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to visit a new country especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation when you're visiting abroad.If you're staying in Belize this page contains useful instructions showing charging the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation by using their standard G, A or B type Belizean 110 volt 60Hz power outlets. You will discover that power supplies will change depending on which region you are in therefore we recommend reading the World power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. If the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 3rd generation charges slowly or does not power up when you are visiting Belize from another country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which come from a country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) may take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check the device is dual voltage (you'll find these are normally marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use.
