Varying different region codes and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never visited before. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge the Kindle Fire when you're travelling abroad.If you're staying in Belarus this page has instructions showing you charging the Kindle Fire using the Type F or C Belarus 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. If visiting Belarus from a different country please double check your Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it. If you plan on taking a trip to a Belarus place such as Minsk we also suggest reading the Belarus Wikipedia page [1] for further information.

These instructions show how to connect the Belarus power outlet to the Kindle. This page assumes that you are using the most recent version of Fire OS for the Fire, but if not visit Amazon for the latest Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have the most up to date set of features for your tablet.

When travelling to more than one country or bringing along more than your Kindle Fire the best international travel adapter for Belarus to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Belarusians use two different types of power outlets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your Kindle Fire supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these USB power chargers, plus additional compatibility with certain power hungry devices.
