Different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning on travelling to a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill 2 abroad.This page contains a guide telling you exactly what you'll need to power your Beats Pill 2 in Bhutan using the Type G, C, D, F or M Bhutanese 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. When travelling to Bhutan from a different country please make sure that your Beats Pill 2 can be charged using a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) double check the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged when powering up.

This list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Bhutanese power outlet. Please note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, visit the Beats page on WikiConnections.org for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before you connect Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

Bhutanese use five different types of power outlets (types G, C, D, F and M) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by changing the heads. If your model of Beats Pill 2 is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets. Unlike other travel adapters having a four port adapter will allow you to power more than one device simultaneously without needing to buy multiple power adapters.
