Different combinations of region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country especially for the first time traveller. This isn't as complicated as it appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards being used in the world this article tells you exactly what to buy in advance to power your Kindle Fire . If visiting Bangladesh these instructions show powering the Kindle Fire by using their standard G, C, D or K type Bangladeshi 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. You will discover power supplies will vary depending on which region you are visiting therefore please read the travel power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Bangladesh from a different country please check that the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it.

The following instructions show you how to connect the Bangladeshi power outlet to your Kindle Fire. This page assumes that you have installed the most recent version of Fire OS for the Fire, however if you don't please visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire software update which makes sure you have the latest fixes for your device. Visit the Amazon.com site for the Kindle Fire device support [2] for further information.

What is the best power adapter for a Kindle Fire in Bangladesh?

When travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire the best international travel adapter for Bangladesh is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Bangladeshis use four different types of power outlets (types G, C, D and K) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the heads. If your Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these USB power adapters and additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets. This means you can recharge multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack multiple power adapters. By only bringing a single lightweight travel charger will keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage and convenient for recharging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on the flight. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used at home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple smartphones and tablets without needing an additional plug socket.

We recommend buying this type of versatile power adapter online; the travel charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
