Danish power outlet

When planning a vacation to Denmark it's useful to know in advance if you can power all your common devices when you get there. But without knowing which plug socket is used you are more likely to bring the wrong charger, therefore leaving you having to buy or borrow a potentially overpriced power adaptor when you need it. Different standards and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning on staying in a new country to the first time traveller. This guide has been written to assist visitors wanting to charge their Beats Pill abroad.This page has instructions showing what you'll need to supply power to your Beats Pill when visiting Denmark using their Type K Danish 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, please be aware that Type K wall outlets are used by most Danes. If travelling to Denmark from another region check your Beats Pill can accept a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the Beats Pill is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Danish 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 any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
