Various combinations of voltages and region codes can all cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country especially for the first time traveller. The following step by step guide shows you what you'll need to charge the Beats Pill 2 when staying in Luxembourg by using their F or C type Luxembourg 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Luxembourg from another region please ensure that the Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from over-heating when powering up.

This list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Luxembourg power outlet. Note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, 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 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.
