Various combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. If visiting Anguilla this page has useful instructions showing charging the Jabra Solemate Mini by using a standard 110 volt 60Hz Type A wall outlet, the Anguillans will use a NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plug for wall outlets. If your Jabra Solemate Mini slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when travelling to Anguilla from a different country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which originated from another country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts either take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check the device is a dual voltage device (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to ensure proper use.

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'.
