Anguillan power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plug types can all be daunting when planning on staying in a foreign country especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of sockets being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the Beats Pill . This page was specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your Beats Pill when you are travelling to Anguilla.When you are planning a vacation to Anguilla the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the Beats Pill using a standard 110 volt 60Hz A Type plug outlet, with the Anguillans using NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plugs for wall outlets. If your Beats Pill does not power up or charges slowly when you are visiting Anguilla from another region then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally electrical devices which come from a different country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts can take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check that your device is a dual voltage device (usually indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to ensure proper use. If you plan on visiting an Anguillan place such as North Side or The Valley we recommend reading the Anguilla Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information on travelling to the location.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2 speakers to the Anguillan power outlet. Note that these instructions refer 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 from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

If you are travelling to more than one country then the best international travel charger for Anguilla to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [7].

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries around the world just by changing the included plugs over. If your Beats Pill is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of power adapters, plus compatibility with more power demanding devices like tablets.

This will allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring multiple power chargers. By only packing a single international travel charger will help keep the overall size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used back at home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional power outlet.

For those travelling frequently we suggest buying this type of versatile travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer; the multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [7] which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
