Differing combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. These instructions were specifically written to help prepare people wanting to charge their Beats Pill 2 when they're going to Bangladesh.This page is a step-by-step guide demonstrating what you'll need to supply power to your Beats Pill 2 when you are in Bangladesh using their G, C, D or K type 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are travelling to Bangladesh from another region please ensure that the Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v make sure the Beats Pill 2 is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you are planning on travelling to a city such as Dhaka we also recommend referring to the Bangladeshi Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.
