Maldivian power outlet

Various voltages and standards can all be confusing when planning to travel to a different country to the first time traveller. However this isn't as complicated as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of sockets used in the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need in advance to charge your Jabra Solemate Mini in Maldives. The following useful guide will show you what you'll need to supply power to your Jabra Solemate Mini in Maldives by using the standard types G, D, J, K or L Maldivian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please note that Type G wall outlets will be normally used by most Maldivians. When you are travelling to Maldives from another region please ensure that the Jabra Solemate Mini can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

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'.
