What is the best power charger for a Kindle Fire 1st generation in Azerbaijan?

If travelling with more than just your Kindle Fire 1st generation or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel power adapter for Azerbaijan is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Azeris use two different types of plug sockets (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads. If your Kindle Fire 1st generation is compatible with Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these USB travel adapters, and support for certain power demanding devices.

Unlike other travel adapters having a 4 port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device at once without needing to pack seperate power adapters on your trip to Azerbaijan. Only needing to pack a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for charging your Kindle Fire 1st generation at an airport or on the plane. Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when you return home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets with only a single wall outlet.

If you travel frequently we suggest buying a versatile travel adapter of this nature at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world on a daily basis.
