Differing region codes and plug types can all cause confusion when planning on visiting a foreign country if you've never visited before. The following simple guide shows you what you'll need to supply power to your Beats Pill 2 when you are visiting Senegal by using the standard types D, C, E or K Senegalese 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When you are visiting Senegal from a different region please ensure the Beats Pill 2 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Beats Pill 2 was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

This list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Senegalese 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 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool for Beats.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging a Beats Pill 2 in Senegal?

When you are travelling with more than just your Beats Pill 2 then the best international travel power adapter for Senegal to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. There are four types of plug sockets that Senegalese use (types D, C, E and K) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your type of Beats Pill 2 can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices. Unlike other chargers having a four port charger will also allow you to charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack seperate power chargers for your trip or occupying additional power outlets. Only bringing a single travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for charging your Beats Pill 2 at an airport or on a flight. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets with only a single plug socket.

For those travelling often we recommend searching for a flexible power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
