Different combinations of frequencies and region codes can often be daunting when planning on staying in a new country to the first time traveller. However this isn't as complex as it appears, with only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used in the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need to purchase in advance to power your Jabra Solemate Mini in Guyana. This guide was specifically written to assist visitors wanting to charge the Jabra Solemate Mini when visiting abroad.The following step by step guide will show what you'll need to power the Jabra Solemate Mini when you are visiting Guyana by using their Type G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz wall outlets. If travelling to Guyana from another region check your Jabra Solemate Mini can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that the device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating when powering up. If you are planning to visit a Guyanese place such as Georgetown or Linden we also suggest referring to the Guyana Wikipedia web page [1] for more information prior to the location.

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'.

What is the best travel adapter for the Jabra Solemate Mini in Guyana?

If travelling to more than one country the best international travel charger for Guyana is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. Guyanese use four different standards of wall outlets (G, A, B and D) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by switching the plugs over. If your model of Jabra Solemate Mini is compatible with Fast Charge (note not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these types of power chargers, along with additional support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other chargers this will also allow you to power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring multiple travel chargers for your trip to Guyana or using up additional wall sockets. By only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will also keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand luggage and suitable for recharging your Jabra Solemate Mini at an airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers and using just a single plug socket.

We suggest buying this type of versatile travel adapter at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [12] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
