If organizing a vacation to Tunisia it's helpful to know in advance if you can charge any vital gadgets such as cell phones and tablets when you arrive. But, by not knowing which power socket is being used in Tunisia you may end up either bringing too many spare adaptors or pack the wrong charger, meaning having to buy or borrow a suitable adaptor on arrival. Different region codes and plug types can all be daunting when planning to visit a different country to the first time traveller. This guide was specifically written to help assist travellers wanting to charge their Beats Pill 2 when they're abroad.The following step-by-step guide shows you what you'll need to supply power to your Beats Pill 2 when going to Tunisia using their E or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please note that Type E wall outlets will be normally used by most Tunisians. You will find that most power sockets change regionally so we recommend reading our Wikiconnections global power connections guide where you'll find a complete list showing regions and countries. If travelling to Tunisia from another region double check your Beats Pill 2 can be used with a 240v supply. If the Beats Pill 2 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging. If you intend on taking a trip to tourist destinations such as Tunis or Sfax we also recommend referring to the Tunisia Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Tunisian power outlet.

Before connecting Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
