Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country, especially if you've never been there before. This guide was specifically written to stop travellers worrying if they can power the iPhone 5C abroad.When visiting Lithuania this page contains useful instructions showing you how to charge the iPhone 5C using their F or C type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. You will find that most power sockets are different from country to country therefore please read the WikiConnections travel power connections list for a full list showing countries. If travelling to Lithuania from another country please make sure the iPhone 5C can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the iPhone 5C is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overloading when powering up. If you plan to visit a Lithuanian destination like Vilnius we suggest referring to the Lithuania country entry on wikipedia.org [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the iPhone 5C in Lithuania?

When you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 5C then the best international travel power adapter for Lithuania to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two types of plug sockets that Lithuanians use (types F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the included plugs. If your iPhone 5C is compatible with Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these power chargers and compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel chargers or using up additional wall outlets. By only needing to pack a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage whilst travelling. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones, tablets and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying this type of flexible power charger online. The power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
