If packing for a trip to Lebanon it is useful to know if you can power all your gadgets such as mobiles and laptops when you're there. Without knowing which power supply is being used in Lebanon you are more likely to bring the wrong charger, leaving you having to buy a suitable power adaptor when you need it which might not be compatible. Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in a different country, especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent visitors having to worry if they'll be able to charge the Beats Pill when they're staying abroad.If planning a holiday to Lebanon this page has instructions showing you charging the Beats Pill using the Type G, A, B, C or D Lebanese 220 volt 50Hz power outlets, Type G plug outlets will be used by a majority of Lebanese. Most power supplies are different depending on which region you are travelling to so please read the power supplies and Asia page for a full list of regions and countries. When you are visiting Lebanon from another country make sure the Beats Pill can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Lebanese power outlet. Please note that this page refers 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. Before you connect Beats Pill 2 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats update tool.

What is the best power adapter for recharging a Beats Pill in Lebanon?

If you are travelling to multiple countries then the best travel power adapter for Lebanon is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [15]. Lebanese use five different standards of wall outlets (types G, A, B, C and D) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types A, C and G.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied plugs. If your Beats Pill supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these USB power chargers, plus additional compatibility with certain power hungry devices. Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter will allow you to charge multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers on your Lebanese trip. By only needing a single travel charger will also keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling as well as being suitable for recharging your Beats Pill at an airport or on a flight.
