Differing voltages and sockets can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. This page has been specifically written to stop visitors needing to worry if they'll be able to power the Beats Pill 2 when going to Uzbekistan.This page contains a step by step guide demonstrating what you'll need to supply power to your Beats Pill 2 when you're travelling to Uzbekistan by using the standard types I or C Uzbekistani 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Uzbekistan from a different country check that your Beats Pill 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If the Beats Pill 2 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the Beats Pill 2 is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it. If you intend on visiting a city such as Tashkent or Namangan we suggest referring to the wikipedia.org page about Uzbekistan [1] for further information on travelling to the area.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Uzbekistani 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 Pill 2.0 firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats update tool.

If travelling with more than your Beats Pill 2 then the best international travel power adapter for Uzbekistan to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [9]. Uzbekistanis use two different types of plug sockets (I and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the supplied heads over. If your model of Beats Pill 2 supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power chargers plus support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other travel adapters this will also allow you to charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to buy individual power chargers. Because you are only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.

If you travel on a regular basis we recommend buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [9] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
