Varying complicated standards and plug types can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country for the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prepare visitors wanting to power their Beats Pill when staying in Falkland Islands.The following simple instructions will show how to charge the Beats Pill when you are travelling to Falkland Islands using the 240 volt 50Hz Type G wall outlet, the Falkland Islanders will use a 13 amp plug for wall outlets. If you are visiting Falkland Islands from another country ensure your Beats Pill can be charged using a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v make sure your Beats Pill is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it. If you intend on taking a trip to a Falkland Islands city like Stanley or Goose Green we also suggest reading the Falkland Islands Wikipedia page [1] for more details.

If you are travelling with more than your Beats Pill or visiting more than one country the best international travel adapter for Falkland Islands is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [7].

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included plugs. If your Beats Pill supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers, plus additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets. Unlike other travel chargers this will allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to buy individual travel chargers or using up additional power sockets. Only packing a single USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage. Because of their versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying an adaptable travel charger of this nature at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [7] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
