Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on visiting another country especially for the first time traveller. These instructions were written to prevent people worrying if they can power the iPhone 5S when they're going abroad.If you are staying in Liechtenstein these useful instructions show how to supply power to your iPhone 5S using their J or C type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power sources will change depending on which region you're taking a trip to therefore we suggest that you read our Wikiconnections global power connections list for a full list showing countries. If travelling to Liechtenstein from another country please ensure that the iPhone 5S can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 5S originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the iPhone 5S 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 over-heating whilst powering it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5S.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 5S in Liechtenstein?

If travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Liechtenstein is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. There are two types of wall outlets in Liechtenstein (types J and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the supplied heads over. If your model of iPhone 5S can support Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB power chargers and support for certain power demanding devices. Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers. Only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the overall weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling and suitable for recharging your iPhone 5S at the airport or on the plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [8] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
