Differing combinations of voltages and sockets can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. The following useful guide tells you exactly what you'll need to power your Beats Pill 2 when travelling to Syria using the Type E, C or L 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If you are travelling to Syria from another region ensure your Beats Pill 2 can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure your Beats Pill 2 is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging.

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 Pill 2.0 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool for Beats.
