But, without knowing which wall socket is used you may end up either over packing with unnecessary spare adaptors or bring the wrong power adaptor, thereby leaving you having to borrow a suitable charger when you're there that might be incompatible. Varying complicated standards and voltages can often be daunting when planning to travel to another country to the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of common standards being used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation . When you are going to travel to Bermuda these useful instructions show how to power the Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation by using the B or A type Bermuda 120 volt 60Hz plug outlets, please be aware that Type B plug outlets are typically used by a majority of Bermudans. If your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation doesn't power up or recharges slowly when you are visiting Bermuda from another region then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from a country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts sometimes take longer to charge or won't power up, so check your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation is a dual voltage device (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to ensure proper use.
