Varying complicated standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning on travelling to a new country if you've never visited before. This page has been written to stop travellers having to worry if they'll be able to power their Jabra Solemate when they are travelling to The Sudan.This page has instructions demonstrating exactly what you'll need to charge the Jabra Solemate when you're in The Sudan by using their types D or C 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are travelling to The Sudan from a different country please ensure your Jabra Solemate can accept a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) 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 whilst powering it up.

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'.

When travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your Jabra Solemate then the best international travel charger for The Sudan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Sudanese use two different types of power outlets (D and C) and using a power adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied heads. If your type of Jabra Solemate is compatible with Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these travel adapters and additional support for certain power hungry devices. This will allow you to charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate power adapters for your trip. Because you are only bringing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the overall size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling and on hand for charging your Jabra Solemate at the airport or on a plane. Due to their space saving versatility these types of adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets using just a single wall outlet.
