Complicated combinations of voltages and region codes can all cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country especially for the first time traveller. The following step by step guide shows you what you'll need to charge the Beats Pill when staying in Lesotho using their 220 volt 50Hz M Type Basotho wall supply. When visiting Lesotho from another country please make sure your Beats Pill can be used with a 240v supply. If your Beats Pill originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts make sure that your 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 charging it.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Basotho power outlet. Note that this page refers to the Beats Pill 2 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, visit the Beats page for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before connecting Beats Pill 2 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
