Various voltages and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in a foreign country especially if you've never been there before. This isn't as complicated as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards used throughout the world this article shows exactly what to pick up in advance to power the Kindle Fire in Azerbaijan. This step by step guide will show how to power your Kindle Fire when you're travelling to Azerbaijan by using their Type F or C Azerbaijani 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. If travelling to Azerbaijan from another region double check the Kindle Fire can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) double check your Kindle Fire is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to prevent the device from over-heating when charging it.

The following instructions show how to connect the Azerbaijani power outlet to the Kindle Fire. This guide assumes that you are using the most recent version of the operating system for the Kindle tablet, however if not visit Amazon for the most recent Kindle Fire update to ensure you have all the latest set of features for your tablet.
