Complicated frequencies and region codes can often lead to confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially if you've never visited before. The following step by step guide will show you exactly how to charge your Jabra Solemate Mini when you are visiting Uzbekistan using their standard types I or C 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. If travelling to Uzbekistan from a different country make sure the Jabra Solemate Mini can accept a 240v supply. If the Jabra Solemate Mini came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the Jabra Solemate Mini is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from overheating whilst powering it.

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 power adapter for recharging the Jabra Solemate Mini in Uzbekistan?

If travelling with more than just your Jabra Solemate Mini then the best travel adapter for Uzbekistan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Uzbekistanis use two different standards of plug sockets (types I and C) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your type of Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these travel adapters plus additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices.

Unlike other travel chargers this means you can charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack individual travel adapters for your trip or using up additional wall outlets. Only needing to bring a single lightweight travel charger will keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage. Due to their space saving versatility these types of adapters can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable travel adapter similar to this online. The multipurpose travel adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [8] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
