Complicated region codes and voltages can often be confusing when planning on visiting a foreign country, especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge the Jabra Solemate Mini when staying in Hungary.This step-by-step guide shows you exactly what you'll need to charge the Jabra Solemate Mini when you're travelling to Hungary using the F or C type Hungarian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Most power is different depending on which area you are in so we recommend reading the power supplies and Europe page for a full list of countries. When visiting Hungary from another country ensure your Jabra Solemate Mini can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Jabra Solemate Mini originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

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'.
