Various region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to visit a different country especially if you've never visited before. This isn't as complex as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of sockets being used throughout the world this article tells you exactly what to purchase in advance to charge your iPhone 4S in Lithuania. This guide shows what you'll need to supply power to your iPhone 4S when you're visiting Lithuania by using the standard Type F or C Lithuanian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Lithuania from a different country check your iPhone 4S can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you intend to visit a Lithuanian place like Vilnius please read the Lithuanian Wikipedia page [1] for more information on visiting the area.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 4S in Lithuania?

If travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Lithuania is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Lithuanians use two different types of plug sockets (F and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied 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 4S 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 travel adapters, along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers. Because you are only bringing a single travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage as well as being convenient for charging your iPhone 4S at an 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 smartphones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.

If you travel frequently we recommend searching for a flexible travel adapter like 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.
