What is the best travel charger for recharging a Beats Pill 2 in Slovenia?

If travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your Beats Pill 2 then the best travel adapter for Slovenia is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. Slovenes use two different standards of power outlets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs over. If your Beats Pill 2 can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of power adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a four port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring seperate travel adapters for your Slovenian trip. Only needing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage whilst travelling. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers using just a single power outlet.

We recommend buying a versatile travel charger of this nature online; the power adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
