Complicated combinations of standards and plugs can often be confusing when planning on travelling to another country, especially if you've never been there before. This page has been written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Kindle Fire abroad.The following step-by-step guide shows you what you'll need to supply power to your Kindle Fire when going to Montenegro using their F or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power supplies will change regionally so we recommend that you read our Wikiconnections global power sockets guide where you'll find a complete list showing regions and countries. If travelling to Montenegro from another region double check your Kindle Fire can be used with a 240v supply. If your Kindle Fire originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from over-heating whilst powering it. If you are planning on visiting a place like Podgorica we also recommend referring to the Montenegrin Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

This list of instructions shows how to connect the Montenegrin power outlet to your tablet.
