Various combinations of standards and plug types can all lead to confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially to the first time traveller. However this isn't as complex as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the Beats Pill . These step by step instructions will show how to power your Beats Pill when you are visiting Bangladesh using the standard G, C, D or K type 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. You'll discover power sockets vary depending on which area you are in therefore we suggest reading the World power supplies page for a full list of countries. When you are visiting Bangladesh from another country please check the Beats Pill can be charged using a 240v supply. If your Beats Pill was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overloading when charging it.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Bangladeshi 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 connecting 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 Beats updater tool.

What is the best travel charger for recharging a Beats Pill in Bangladesh?

When travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than your Beats Pill the best international travel charger for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. There are four types of power outlets in Bangladesh (G, C, D and K) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the included heads. If your type of Beats Pill supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters plus additional support for certain power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other adapters this means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring individual power adapters on your Bangladeshi trip or using up additional wall outlets. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand luggage and convenient for charging your Beats Pill at the airport or on the plane.
