Varying different standards and plug types can often be daunting when planning to stay in a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare travellers wanting to power their Beats Pill 2 abroad.If travelling to Jordan this page contains useful instructions showing charging the Beats Pill 2 by using their standard Type G, B, C, D, F or J Jordanian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, Type G plug outlets will be normally used by a majority of Jordanians. If you are visiting Jordan from another country ensure your Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your Beats Pill 2 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it up.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to the Jordanian power outlet. Note that this page refers to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, please visit the Beats page on WikiConnections.org for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before connecting Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2.0 firmware update from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
