Varying complicated region codes and voltages can all be daunting when planning on visiting another country if you've never been there before. This guide has been specifically written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Beats Pill 2 abroad.This page contains a simple guide telling you exactly what you'll need to power your Beats Pill 2 when you are in Yemen using the standard G, A or D type Yemeni 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Yemen 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 (for example 110 volts) make sure 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.

This list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to the Yemeni 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 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.
