The following guide tells you how to supply power to the Beats Pill in Togo using their standard 220 volt 50Hz C Type Togolese plug outlet, the Togolese will use a Europlug for power outlets.

When travelling to Togo from another region ensure that your Beats Pill can accept a 240 volt supply. If your Beats Pill came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your Beats Pill is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from being damaged when charging it.

If travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your Beats Pill then the best international travel adapter for Togo is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [7]. Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your type of Beats Pill supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of power adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

This means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to buy individual power adapters or occupying additional power sockets. Because you are only bringing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Because of their versatility these types of travel adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.
