Different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning on travelling to another country if you've never been there before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare people wanting to charge the Jabra Solemate Mini when staying in Slovakia.If planning a holiday to Slovakia this page contains instructions showing you charging the Jabra Solemate Mini using the Type E or C Slovak 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Most power is different depending on which area you are in so please read the power supplies and Europe page for a full list of regions and countries. When you are travelling to Slovakia from another country ensure the Jabra Solemate Mini can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. If you're planning on staying in a Slovak city like Bratislava or KoŇ°ice we recommend reading the Slovak Wikipedia page [1] for more details prior to visiting the location.

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 adapter for the Jabra Solemate Mini in Slovakia?

When travelling with more than your Jabra Solemate Mini or visiting more than one country the best international travel charger for Slovakia to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. There are two different standards of plug sockets in Slovakia (E and C) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters plus additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port charger will allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers on your Slovak trip. By only needing a single USB travel charger will also keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being suitable for charging your Jabra Solemate Mini at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional plug socket.

If you travel to Slovakia we suggest buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer - the travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [8] which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
