Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country, especially for the first time traveller. This page has instructions showing exactly how to charge your Beats Pill when you're visiting Liechtenstein using their J or C type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. When you are visiting Liechtenstein from a different country check your Beats Pill can be used with a 240v supply. If the Beats Pill originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Beats Pill is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from overheating when charging it. If you plan on staying in a Liechtenstein destination like Schaan we suggest referring to the Liechtenstein country page on wikipedia.org [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Liechtenstein power outlet. Note that these instructions refer 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 anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool.

What is the best power charger for a Beats Pill in Liechtenstein?

When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel charger for Liechtenstein is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. Liechtensteiners use two different standards of wall outlets (J and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your model of Beats Pill can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel adapters. Because you are only packing a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage as well as being on hand for charging your Beats Pill at an airport or on a plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying this type of flexible travel adapter online. The power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
