How to connect a Tongan power outlet to a Kindle Fire

Tongan power outlet

Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on visiting a foreign country to the first time traveller. When staying in Tonga the following instructions show charging your Kindle Fire by using the standard 240 volt 50Hz Type I Tongan plug outlet. You'll discover that most power sockets are different regionally so we recommend reading our Wikiconnections global power sockets guide where you'll find a full list showing countries. When you are visiting Tonga from a different country double check the Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Kindle Fire was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overloading when charging it.

These instructions show you how to connect the Tongan power outlet to your tablet. This guide assumes that you are using the most recent version of Fire OS for the Kindle, if you don't we suggest installing the most recent Kindle Fire software update which makes sure you have the most up-to-date fixes for your device.
