Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country, especially for the first time traveller. These instructions were written to prevent people worrying if they can power the Jabra Solemate when going abroad.This page contains step-by-step instructions demonstrating exactly how to power the Jabra Solemate when staying in Myanmar using their Type G, C, D or F 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power sources will change depending on which region you're taking a trip to therefore we suggest that you read our Wikiconnections travel power connections list where you'll find a complete list of countries. If travelling to Myanmar from another country please ensure that the Jabra Solemate can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Jabra Solemate originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Jabra Solemate is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it.

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 power charger for the Jabra Solemate in Myanmar?

If travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Myanmar is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. There are four types of wall outlets that Myanmas use (types G, C, D and F) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the supplied heads over. If your model of Jabra Solemate can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel adapters and support for certain power demanding devices. Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers. Because you are only packing a single lightweight travel charger will keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling and suitable for recharging your Jabra Solemate at the airport or on the plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [12] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
