Different standards and sockets can often lead to confusion when planning to visit another country if you've never been there before. This guide has been specifically written to stop travellers having to worry if they can charge the Beats Pill abroad.When you are travelling to Lithuania the following useful instructions show powering the Beats Pill using the Type F or C Lithuanian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If travelling to Lithuania from a different country please ensure your Beats Pill can accept a 240 volt supply. If your Beats Pill came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating during charging. If you plan on taking a trip to a destination such as Vilnius or Kaunas we recommend referring to the Lithuania country wikipedia page [1] for more details on visiting the location.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to your Lithuanian power outlet.

Before you connect Beats Pill 2 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2 firmware update from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
