Guyanese power outlet

Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. This isn't as complicated as it appears, with only a handful of different types of standards used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what you'll need to pick up in advance to charge your Beats Pill 2 . If you're planning a holiday to Guyana this page has instructions showing you charging the Beats Pill 2 using the types G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Guyana from another country check 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) make sure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

These instructions show you how to connect to Beats Pill 2.0 speakers to the Guyanese power outlet. Please note that these instructions refer to the Beats Pill 2.0 and not the original Beats Pill first generation, 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 update from the official Beats Pill support site [2] using the Beats updater tool.

What is the best travel charger for recharging a Beats Pill 2 in Guyana?

If travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your Beats Pill 2 then the best travel adapter for Guyana is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. There are four standards of wall outlets that Guyanese use (types G, A, B and D) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your type of Beats Pill 2 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets. Unlike other adapters this means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate travel adapters for your Guyanese trip. Only needing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling as well as being suitable for charging your Beats Pill 2 at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers with just a single power outlet.

We recommend searching for a multipurpose travel charger of this nature online; the multipurpose power adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
