Varying complicated combinations of voltages and standards can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country especially to the first time traveller. This page has been specifically written to prevent people worrying if they can charge their Jabra Solemate Mini abroad.This page is a guide showing exactly how to power the Jabra Solemate Mini when staying in Libya by using the standard types D, C, F or L Libyan 127 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power sources are different regionally so we recommend reading our Wikiconnections world power supplies page for a full list showing powering devices in different destinations. If your Jabra Solemate Mini charges slowly or does not power up when travelling to Libya from another country please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally devices which originate from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, check your Jabra Solemate Mini is dual voltage (usually marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to ensure proper use. However please note that Barca, Benghazi, Derna, Sabha and Tobruk will use a 230 volt power outlet instead of 110 volts.

Ensure you have version 1.14 or greater of the Jabra Solemate Mini firmware, visit the official Jabra Solemate Mini support site [2] to download the latest version. You can switch off the default 'Connected' and other announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate Mini until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.
