Differing combinations of region codes and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country for the first time traveller. If staying in Nevis the following useful instructions show how to power your Beats Pill 2 by using their standard Type G, A, B or D 230 volt 60Hz wall outlets. If you are visiting Nevis from another country make sure that the Beats Pill 2 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from being damaged when charging it. If you intend on taking a trip to a destination such as Basseterre please refer to the Wikipedia page about Nevis [1] for more indepth information.

The following list of instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to your Nevis power outlet. Note that this page refers 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 connecting Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to anything we recommend downloading the latest Beats firmware from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Update tool for Beats.
