If packing for a vacation it can be useful to know in advance if you can charge any electronics like mobiles or laptop computers when you get there. However without knowing which plug socket is being used you are more likely to bring the wrong power adaptor, therefore leaving you having to buy or borrow a suitable charger when you arrive. Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country, especially for the first time traveller. These instructions were written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill when going abroad.These simple instructions shows you exactly how to charge the Beats Pill when visiting Seychelles by using the standard 240 volt 50Hz Type G Seychellois wall outlet, with the Seychellois using a 13 amp plug for charging. When you are visiting Seychelles from a different country check your Beats Pill can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from overloading when powering up. If you intend to visit a Seychellois place like Victoria please read the Seychellois Wikipedia page [1] for more information on visiting the area.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Seychellois power outlet. Note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, visit the Beats page for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers.
