This guide was written to assist people wanting to power the Beats Pill 2 when visiting abroad.If you're going to Nepal this page has instructions showing how to charge your Beats Pill 2 using the standard Type D, C or M 230 volt 50Hz power outlets.

What is the best travel adapter for a Beats Pill 2 in Nepal?

If travelling to more than one country the best international travel power adapter for Nepal is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Nepalese use three different standards of plug sockets (D, C and M) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by changing the included plugs. If your model of Beats Pill 2 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these types of USB travel chargers and additional compatibility with more power demanding devices. This means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to buy seperate power adapters or using up additional power outlets. Because you are only needing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand baggage while travelling and suitable for charging your Beats Pill 2 at an airport or on a plane. Due to their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers without needing an additional plug socket.

For those travelling frequently we suggest buying this type of flexible travel adapter online. The travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world.
