When organizing a vacation it can be helpful to know if you'll be able to charge any common devices when you arrive. But, without knowing which plug socket to expect you are more likely to bring the wrong power charger, meaning having to buy or borrow a potentially overpriced adaptor when you're there which could be incompatible. Varying different voltages and standards can all be confusing when planning to visit another country especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill when you are visiting Saint Vincent.When you are staying in Saint Vincent this page has useful instructions showing powering your Beats Pill by using the G, C, E, I or K type St Vincentian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, you'll find a majority of St Vincentians will normally use Type G wall outlets. You'll find power is different depending on which country you are travelling to so we recommend reading the North America page for a full list of countries. If you are travelling to Saint Vincent from a different country ensure that the Beats Pill can be used with a 240v supply. If the Beats Pill came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check the Beats Pill is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from overheating when charging it.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your St Vincentian power outlet.
