Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never visited before. However this isn't as complex as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what you'll need to buy in advance to charge the Beats Pill 2 . The following guide tells you how to supply power to the Beats Pill 2 when you are in Armenia using their standard F or C type Armenian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power supplies will change depending on which area you are visiting so please read the power supplies and Europe page for a full list of regions and countries. When you are travelling to Armenia from another country ensure the Beats Pill 2 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

The following instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Armenian power outlet. Please note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, please visit the Beats page on WikiConnections.org for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before connecting Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2.0 firmware update from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats update tool.

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