Varying complicated voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning to stay in a foreign country especially if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power your Jabra Solemate . If travelling to Nauru these instructions show how to supply power to the Jabra Solemate by using their standard 240 volt 50Hz I Type Nauruan power supply. You will discover that power supplies are different depending on which country you are in therefore please read the travel power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Nauru from a different country please double check the Jabra Solemate can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Jabra Solemate was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging.

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'.

What is the best travel charger for recharging the Jabra Solemate in Nauru?

If you are travelling with more than your Jabra Solemate or visiting more than one country the best international travel adapter for Nauru is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [6].

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included plugs over. If your Jabra Solemate supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers, plus additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets. Unlike other travel chargers this will allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel chargers or occupying additional wall sockets. Only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage. Because of their versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying an adaptable travel charger of this nature at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [6] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
