Different frequencies and standards can all be daunting when planning on staying in a different country, especially to the first time traveller. This page contains a step by step guide showing exactly what you'll need to charge the Jabra Solemate Mini when you're in Pakistan using the standard G, C, D or M type 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. You will find power supplies will vary regionally so please read the WikiConnections global power sockets page where you'll find a full list showing countries. When you are travelling to Pakistan from another country check that the Jabra Solemate Mini can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure that your Jabra Solemate Mini is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from over-heating 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'.

What is the best travel charger for the Jabra Solemate Mini in Pakistan?

When you are travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than just your Jabra Solemate Mini the best international travel charger for Pakistan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. Pakistanis use four different standards of wall outlets (types G, C, D and M) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the heads over. If your type of Jabra Solemate Mini supports Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these travel chargers along with support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to buy multiple power chargers on your Pakistani trip or occupying additional wall outlets. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional plug socket.

If you travel to Pakistan we recommend buying this type of versatile travel charger at an electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [12] which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries on a daily basis.
