Grenadian power outlet

Complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning to travel to a new country especially for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need to pick up in advance to charge your Beats Pill . This page contains instructions demonstrating what you'll need to power your Beats Pill when staying in Grenada using the 230 volt 50Hz Type G Grenadian power outlet, with the Grenadians using 13 amp plugs for power outlets. You will discover that power sockets will change depending on which country you are travelling to so please read the power supplies and North America page for a full list of regions and countries. When travelling to Grenada from a different region ensure your Beats Pill can be charged using a 240v supply. If the Beats Pill was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the Beats Pill is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overloading during charging. If you're planning on staying in a place like St. George's or Gouyave please refer to the Wikipedia web page about Grenada [1] for more indepth information.

The following instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Grenadian power outlet. 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 you connect Beats Pill 2 speakers to any device we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats update tool.

What is the best power adapter for a Beats Pill in Grenada?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing along more than your Beats Pill then the best travel adapter for Grenada is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [7]. As these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs over. If your type of Beats Pill can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices.

This means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to bring individual power adapters for your Grenadian trip. By only needing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage and on hand for recharging your Beats Pill at the airport or on your flight. Due to their versatility these types of chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers using only a single power outlet.

We recommend buying this type of versatile power adapter at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [7] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
