Various combinations of frequencies and region codes can often cause confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of common standards being used throughout the world this article shows exactly what you'll need to purchase in advance to power the iPad 4 in Liechtenstein. When you're visiting Liechtenstein this page has useful instructions showing you how to power your iPad 4 using the standard J or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. You will discover that power will change depending on which area you are visiting so please read the Europe page for a complete list of countries. If you are visiting Liechtenstein from a different country please ensure that your iPad 4 can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPad 4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the iPad 4 is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you are planning on staying in a place like Schaan we recommend reading the Liechtenstein Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPad 4 in Liechtenstein?

If travelling to more than one country then the best international travel charger for Liechtenstein is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two different standards of wall outlets that Liechtensteiners use (J and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your iPad 4 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from quicker charging times by using one of these types of power adapters, and support for more power hungry devices. This will allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple travel chargers or using up additional wall outlets. Because you are only needing to bring a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the overall size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage as well as being convenient for recharging your iPad 4 at the airport or on a plane. Due to their flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets and smartphones using just a single plug socket.

We suggest searching for an adaptable travel adapter like this online. The travel adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
