Varying different combinations of region codes and sockets can often lead to confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially to the first time traveller. This page has been specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your Jabra Solemate when you are travelling to Mozambique.If you're travelling to Mozambique this page contains useful instructions showing you how to charge your Jabra Solemate by using their Type F, C or M Mozambican 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. When travelling you'll find power supplies differ depending on which region you in therefore we recommend reading the Wiki Connections global power sockets list where you'll find a complete list showing charging devices in different regions. When you are travelling to Mozambique from another country please check the Jabra Solemate can be charged using a 240v supply. If your Jabra Solemate originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check the Jabra Solemate is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from being damaged during charging.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.

What is the best travel charger for the Jabra Solemate in Mozambique?

When you are travelling with more than your Jabra Solemate and visiting multiple countries then the best travel adapter for Mozambique to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. There are three standards of power outlets that Mozambicans use (F, C and M) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type C.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the included plugs. If your Jabra Solemate is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters plus additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a 4 port adapter will also allow you to power more than one device at the same time without needing to buy seperate travel adapters for your trip. Because you are only bringing a single USB travel charger will keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple phones, tablets and e-readers without using up an additional plug socket.

We suggest searching for this type of flexible power adapter at an electronics retailer, the travel adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [10] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world.
