Jordanian power outlet

Various voltages and sockets can all be daunting when planning to travel to a different country to the first time traveller. However this isn't as complicated as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used in the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need in advance to power your Beats Pill in Jordan. If you are going to travel to Jordan the following instructions show charging your Beats Pill by using the standard types G, B, C, D, F or J Jordanian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, please note that Type G wall outlets will be normally used by most Jordanians. When you are travelling to Jordan from a different region please ensure the Beats Pill can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Beats Pill was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

The following instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Jordanian power outlet. Please 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 Pill 2 firmware update from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats firmware updater.

What is the best power charger for a Beats Pill in Jordan?

When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Jordan to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [17]. Jordanians use six different types of plug sockets (G, B, C, D, F and J) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the supplied heads over. If your Beats Pill is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus support for certain power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring multiple travel adapters. Only needing to bring a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage as well as being convenient for recharging your Beats Pill at the airport or on the plane. Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

If you travel frequently we recommend buying this type of flexible power charger online, the multipurpose travel charger illustrated is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [17] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries on a daily basis.
