Various region codes and plug types can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. This page has instructions showing exactly how to charge your Beats Pill when you're visiting Belize using their G, A or B type 110 volt 60Hz power outlets. You'll discover most power sockets will vary depending on which country you visiting therefore we suggest that you read our Wiki Connections world power supplies list where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different destinations. If your Beats Pill does not power up or charges slowly when visiting Belize from a different region check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, check that the Beats Pill is a dual voltage device (normally marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Belizean power outlet. Please note that this page refers to the Beats Pill 2 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, visit the Beats page for the full range of Beats bluetooth speakers. Before connecting Beats Pill 2 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

When you are travelling to more than one country then the best international travel power adapter for Belize to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Belizeans use three different types of plug sockets (G, A and B) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by changing the included heads over. If your model of Beats Pill can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel adapters.
