Complicated frequencies and standards can all be daunting when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially for the first time traveller. However this isn't as complex as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the Beats Pill in Myanmar. These instructions have been written to stop you worrying if you'll be able to charge your Beats Pill when you're in staying in Myanmar.This page contains a step by step guide showing exactly what you'll need to supply power to the Beats Pill in Myanmar by using their types G, C, D or F 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power sockets vary depending on which country you are in therefore we suggest reading the travel power supplies page for a full list of countries. When you are travelling to Myanmar from another country check the Beats Pill can accept a 240v supply. If the Beats Pill was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v ensure that your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it. If you plan to visit a Myanmar city like Yangon read the Myanmar country entry on wikipedia [1] for further details on travelling to the location.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Myanmar power outlet. 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 connecting Beats Pill 2 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool.

Can you use a Beats Pill in Myanmar?

You can connect a Beats Pill to a Myanmar power outlet by using the correct power adaptor.

What is the best travel adapter for a Beats Pill in Myanmar?

When you are travelling with more than your Beats Pill the best international travel charger for Myanmar is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. There are four types of power outlets in Myanmar (G, C, D and F) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied heads. If your model of Beats Pill is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these travel chargers along with support for more power hungry devices.

Having a four port adapter will also allow you to power more than one device at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers or occupying additional power sockets. By only needing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage as well as being suitable for charging your Beats Pill at an airport or on the flight. Because of their flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional plug socket.

We recommend buying this type of flexible travel adapter at your preferred electronics retailer - the power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world.
