Complicated region codes and voltages can often be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent visitors having to worry if they can charge the Beats Pill when they're travelling abroad.If planning a trip to Turkmenistan these instructions show powering the Beats Pill by using the types C, B or F 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If visiting Turkmenistan from a different country please double check your Beats Pill can be charged using a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the Beats Pill is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it. If you plan on taking a trip to a Turkmen place such as Ashgabat refer to the Turkmenistan entry on wikipedia [1] for more indepth information.
