Different standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to stay in a new country if you've never been there before. These step by step instructions will show how to power your Kindle Fire when you are travelling to Comoros using their standard Type E or C 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If travelling to Comoros from a different country ensure that the Kindle Fire can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure that your Kindle Fire is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it. If you plan to visit a Comorian city like Moroni refer to the Comorian country entry on wikipedia [1] for more details.

This list of instructions shows you how to connect the Comorian power outlet to your tablet. This page assumes that you are using the most recent version of the operating system for the Kindle Fire, but if you don't we recommend installing the latest Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have all the latest features for your device.
