Nauruan power outlet

Different standards and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country especially for the first time traveller. This page is a useful guide showing how to supply power to the Beats Pill 2 when you're visiting Nauru using the standard 240 volt 50Hz I Type Nauruan power supply. You'll discover that power sockets are different depending on which area you are travelling to so please read the power supplies and Oceania page for a full list of countries. When travelling to Nauru from a different country please check that your Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from over-heating when powering up. If you plan on travelling to a Nauruan city like Yaren or Denigomudu please read the wikipedia entry about Nauru [1] for more indepth information.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Nauruan power outlet. Please note that this page refers 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 updater tool.
