Complicated frequencies and region codes can often lead to confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially if you've never visited before. If visiting Georgia these instructions show how to power the Beats Pill 2 using the standard F or C type 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power sources will vary depending on which country you travelling to therefore we recommend reading the WikiConnections global power supplies list where you'll find a full list showing powering devices in different regions and countries. When you are visiting Georgia from another region please make sure that your Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. If you intend to visit a Georgian city such as Sukhumi we recommend reading the Georgia country Wiki page [1] for more indepth information.

This list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to the Georgian power outlet. Please note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, please visit the Beats page on WikiConnections.org for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before connecting Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2.0 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
