Varying different region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country for the first time traveller. This guide has been written to stop you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Beats Pill when staying in Djibouti.The following guide tells you exactly what you'll need to charge the Beats Pill when you're visiting Djibouti using the Type E or C 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power sockets will vary depending on which area you are travelling to so please read the Africa and power supplies page for a full list of regions and countries. When travelling to Djibouti from a different country please make sure that your Beats Pill can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v check that the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from over-heating when powering up. If you plan on travelling to a Djiboutian city like Djibouti or Ali Sabieh please refer to the Wikipedia entry about Djibouti [1] for more indepth information.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Djiboutian power outlet. Please note that these instructions refer 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 you connect Beats Pill 2 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool.

When travelling with more than just your Beats Pill the best international travel charger for Djibouti to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. There are two types of power outlets that Djiboutians use (E and C) and using a power adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the heads. If your type of Beats Pill is compatible with Fast Charge (please note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with compatibility with certain power hungry devices. This means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy seperate travel chargers or using up additional power sockets.
