This simple guide will show exactly what you'll need to supply power to the Kindle Fire 1st generation when you're visiting Angola using the 220 volt 50Hz C Type Angolan power outlet, with the Angolans using a Europlug for wall outlets.

When travelling with more than your Kindle Fire 1st generation or visiting more than one country the best international travel charger for Angola to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [7].

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs over. If your Kindle Fire 1st generation can support Fast Charge (note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these USB power adapters plus additional support for more power hungry devices.

This will allow you to power more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack multiple power adapters or using up additional power sockets. Only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones using only a single power outlet.

We recommend buying a versatile power charger of this nature online; the power adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [7] which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
