Various combinations of region codes and voltages can often be confusing when planning to stay in a new country especially for the first time traveller. This page has been written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the Beats Pill 2 when you're in staying in Brunei.The following instructions shows you how to charge your Beats Pill 2 when travelling to Brunei using a standard 240 volt 50Hz G Type Bruneian wall outlet, the Bruneians will use a 13 amp plug for charging. When travelling to Brunei from a different region ensure that your Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it. If you plan on taking a trip to a destination such as Bandar Seri Begawan or Kuala Belait we recommend referring to the wikipedia entry about Brunei [1] for more details prior to visiting the location.
