Various combinations of voltages and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country for the first time traveller. This page is a simple guide telling you exactly what you'll need to power your iPhone when you are in Liechtenstein using their standard J or C type Liechtenstein 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Liechtenstein from another country check that the iPhone 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 iPhone is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from over-heating when powering up.
