Various region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. This page has been specifically written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge your Beats Pill 2 when you're visiting abroad.When visiting Grenada the following instructions show powering your Beats Pill 2 using a 230 volt 50Hz G Type plug outlet, the Grenadians will use a 13 amp plug for power outlets. When you are visiting Grenada from a different country double check your Beats Pill 2 can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when charging it. If you plan on visiting a place such as St. George's or Gouyave refer to the Grenadian Wikipedia page [1] for further information on visiting the area.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Grenadian power outlet. 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 you connect Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats Pill 2.0 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

If travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Grenada is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [7]. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the included heads over. If your model of Beats Pill 2 can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.
