Belarus power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country, especially for the first time traveller. When you're going to travel to Belarus these useful instructions show powering your Jabra Solemate using their Type F or C Belarus 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When visiting Belarus from another country please ensure that the Jabra Solemate can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.

What is the best power charger for the Jabra Solemate in Belarus?

If travelling to multiple countries or bringing along more than just your Jabra Solemate the best travel charger for Belarus is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. There are two different standards of power outlets in Belarus (F and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your type of Jabra Solemate can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger will allow you to charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel adapters. Only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage as well as being convenient for charging your Jabra Solemate at the airport or on the plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones with only a single plug socket.

For those travelling often we recommend searching for a versatile travel charger like this at an electronics retailer.
