When you are travelling with more than your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation and visiting multiple countries the best travel power adapter for Belarus is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Belarusians use two different standards of plug sockets (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.
