Various region codes and plugs can often cause confusion when planning on staying in a foreign country to the first time traveller. The following step by step instructions shows you what you'll need to supply power to the Beats Pill 2 when travelling to Maldives by using the G, D, J, K or L type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, most Maldivians use Type G wall outlets.

If the Beats Pill 2 came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v check your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you are planning on visiting a Maldivian destination like Mal' refer to the Maldivian Wikipedia page [1] for more details prior to the location.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Maldivian power outlet.
