Various standards and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. This page has been specifically written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Jabra Solemate when you're travelling abroad.When staying in Saint Vincent the following instructions show charging your Jabra Solemate by using the standard types G, C, E, I or K 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, Type G wall outlets will be typically used by a majority of St Vincentians. When you are visiting Saint Vincent from a different country check that the Jabra Solemate can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Jabra Solemate was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your Jabra Solemate is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overheating when charging it. If you intend to stay at a city such as Kingstown or Georgetown we also recommend reading the Saint Vincent Wiki page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

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 travel adapter for recharging the Jabra Solemate in Saint Vincent?

When travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Saint Vincent to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. There are five types of plug sockets that St Vincentians use (types G, C, E, I and K) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your type of Jabra Solemate can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus support for more power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other travel chargers having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to buy individual travel adapters or using up additional wall sockets. By only packing a single travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage as well as being on hand for charging your Jabra Solemate at the airport or on the plane. Due to their flexibility these types of chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying a versatile travel adapter like this at an electronics retailer; the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [12] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
