Different combinations of standards and plugs can often cause confusion when planning to travel to another country, especially if you've never visited before. When you're travelling to Solomon Islands this page has useful instructions showing how to charge your Kindle Fire by using the G or I type 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power sources vary regionally therefore please read our Wikiconnections world power sockets guide for a full list of regions and countries. When you are visiting Solomon Islands from a different region please ensure your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If the Kindle Fire was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you intend on taking a trip to a place like Honiara we also recommend reading the Solomon Islands Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information.

The following page shows you how to connect the Solomon Islands power outlet to the Kindle. These instructions assume that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle Fire, but if you don't visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire update to ensure you have the latest set of features for your device.

There are two types of power outlets in Solomon Islands (types G and I) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for type G.

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by switching the heads over.
