Different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. These instructions were written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation when going abroad.When visiting Algeria the following instructions show powering your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation using the standard Type F or C Algerian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets.

When you are travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Algeria is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. There are two different standards of wall outlets in Algeria (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your Kindle Fire HD 7 4th generation supports Fast Charge (note not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to buy individual power adapters on your trip to Algeria or occupying additional power outlets. By only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage. Due to their flexibility these types of travel adapters can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets and using just a single wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
