Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country, especially for the first time traveller. These instructions were written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill when you're going abroad.This page contains simple instructions showing you exactly how to power the Beats Pill when staying in Guyana by using the standard Type G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. If visiting Guyana from another region please make sure the Beats Pill can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Beats Pill originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Beats Pill is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

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

What is the best travel adapter for recharging a Beats Pill in Guyana?

When travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Guyana is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. Guyanese use four different types of plug sockets (G, A, B and D) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the included heads over. If your model of Beats Pill 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.

This means you can charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy seperate power chargers. Because you are only bringing a single travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage. Due to their space saving versatility these types of travel chargers can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.

If you travel frequently we recommend searching for this type of versatile travel adapter online - the power charger illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
