Jordanian power outlet

If you are packing for a holiday to Jordan it can be helpful to know if you can use any essential gadgets that you are bringing with you. But by not knowing which plug socket is used you could end up either weighing your luggage down with too many adaptors or pack the wrong power charger, therefore leaving you needing to buy or borrow a potentially overpriced charger when you need to recharge that could be incompatible and damage the device. Complicated region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. This simple guide tells you exactly what you'll need to supply power to the Jabra Solemate when you're travelling to Jordan using the Type G, B, C, D, F or J Jordanian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, Type G wall outlets are normally used by a majority of Jordanians. If you are visiting Jordan from another region please check the Jabra Solemate can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) double check the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from overloading 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 Jordan?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing along more than your Jabra Solemate the best international travel adapter for Jordan to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. Jordanians use six different types of power outlets (types G, B, C, D, F and J) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied plugs. If your Jabra Solemate can support Fast Charge (note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters and additional support for more power hungry devices.

This will also allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to buy individual power adapters or occupying additional wall sockets. Because you are only bringing a single international travel charger will keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage while travelling and on hand for recharging your Jabra Solemate at an airport or on your flight. Due to their versatility these types of chargers can be used back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional plug socket.

If you travel often we suggest searching for this type of flexible power adapter at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
