Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on visiting another country especially if you've never visited before. If you are going to travel to Guadeloupe these useful instructions show how to supply power to your Jabra Solemate Mini using their D, C or E type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. When you are visiting Guadeloupe from a different country check your Jabra Solemate Mini can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v make sure that the Jabra Solemate Mini is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

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'.

When you are travelling with more than just your Jabra Solemate Mini or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for Guadeloupe is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. Guadeloupians use three different types of plug sockets (D, C and E) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the supplied heads over. If your model of Jabra Solemate Mini can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power chargers plus support for certain power demanding devices. Unlike other chargers having a four port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel adapters on your trip to Guadeloupe or occupying additional power outlets. Only packing a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage. Because of their space saving versatility these types of travel chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets and using only a single wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer. The power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [10] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
