Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on staying in a foreign country if you've never visited before. These instructions were specifically written to help prepare people wanting to charge their Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation when they're going to El Salvador.This page contains step by step instructions demonstrating exactly how to supply power to your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation when you're travelling to El Salvador by using the standard Type B or A 115 volt 60Hz power outlets. You will find that most power sockets change regionally so we recommend reading our Wikiconnections global power connections guide where you'll find a complete list showing regions and countries. If your Kindle Fire HD 3rd generation charges slowly or does not power up when visiting El Salvador from a different region check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 220 volts) either take longer to charge or won't power up, so check that the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to ensure proper use.
