Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country, especially if you've never been there before. The following simple guide will show you what you'll need to supply power to your Jabra Solemate when going to The British Virgin Islands by using the standard Type B or A 110 volt 60Hz power outlets. You'll discover most power sockets will vary depending on which country you're taking a trip to therefore please read the WikiConnections travel power sockets list for a full list showing regions. If your Jabra Solemate charges slowly or does not power up when travelling to The British Virgin Islands from another region please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) can take longer to charge or won't power up, so check that the Jabra Solemate is a dual voltage device (you'll find these are normally marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use.

Ensure you have download version 1.34 or greater of the latest Jabra Solemate firmware from the official Jabra Solemate support site [2]. After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.
