Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country, especially if you've never been there before. These instructions were written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill abroad.When going to Syria these useful instructions show powering your Beats Pill using their Type E, C or L Syrian 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Syria from a different country check your Beats Pill can accept a 240 volt supply. If the Beats Pill originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overloading whilst powering it up.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Syrian power outlet.

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

When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Syria to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Syrians use three different types of plug sockets (E, C and L) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the included plugs. If your Beats Pill is compatible with Fast Charge (note not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger will allow you to recharge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel chargers or using up additional wall outlets. By only needing to pack a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage whilst travelling. Due to their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying this type of flexible travel adapter at an electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world.
