These instructions were written to prevent people worrying if they can power the Jabra Solemate Mini when going abroad.This useful guide will show you what you'll need to supply power to your Jabra Solemate Mini when you're travelling to Greenland by using the standard types E, C, F or K Greenlandic 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets, please note that Type E plug outlets are normally used by most Greenlanders.

If travelling with more than your Jabra Solemate Mini then the best international travel power adapter for Greenland to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are four different standards of power outlets in Greenland (E, C, F and K) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the included plugs over. If your model of Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel adapters, and additional compatibility with more power demanding devices.

By only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.
