If organizing a holiday to Israel it is useful to know in advance if you can charge your essential devices such as cell phones and cameras when you arrive. But, by not knowing which power socket is being used in Israel you may end up either bringing too many spare adaptors or pack the wrong charger, meaning having to buy or borrow a suitable charger on arrival. Varying complicated region codes and plug types can all cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country to the first time traveller. This guide was specifically written to help prepare visitors wanting to charge their Beats Pill 2 when they're going to Israel.This page contains step by step instructions demonstrating exactly how to charge your Beats Pill 2 when you're travelling to Israel by using the standard Type M, C or H 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, most Israelis will typically use the Type M plug outlets. When you are visiting Israel from a different country make sure the Beats Pill 2 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overloading when powering up.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to the Israeli power outlet. Please 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 you connect Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2.0 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

What is the best power charger for a Beats Pill 2 in Israel?

If travelling to multiple countries then the best international travel power adapter for Israel to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are three types of wall outlets in Israel (types M, C and H) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the supplied heads. If your Beats Pill 2 is compatible with Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these power adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power demanding devices. Having a 4 port adapter means you can power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring multiple travel adapters or using up additional wall outlets. By only packing a single travel charger will help keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage as well as being on hand for charging your Beats Pill 2 at an airport or on a plane. Because of their space saving 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 phones, tablets and speakers without using up an additional wall outlet.

We recommend searching for a flexible power charger similar to this online, the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
