When travelling with more than your Beats Pill the best travel power adapter for Luxembourg is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. There are two standards of power outlets that Luxembourgers use (F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your type of Beats Pill supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these types of USB power chargers, and support for more power hungry devices. Unlike other travel chargers this means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to pack multiple travel chargers. Only bringing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage.
