Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country, especially to the first time traveller. When you're visiting Azerbaijan this page has useful instructions showing you how to power your Jabra Solemate Mini using the standard F or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets.

If you are travelling to Azerbaijan from a different country ensure 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) double check the Jabra Solemate Mini is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from overloading when charging 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'.
