This page was specifically written to help assist travellers wanting to charge their Kindle Fire abroad.This page contains a simple guide showing what you'll need to charge the Kindle Fire when going to Liechtenstein by using their Type J or C Liechtenstein 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets.

What is the best power adapter for recharging a Kindle Fire in Liechtenstein?

When travelling with more than your Kindle Fire and visiting multiple countries the best travel adapter for Liechtenstein to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two different standards of plug sockets that Liechtensteiners use (J and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world just by changing the supplied plugs. If your type of Kindle Fire can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these types of USB power chargers along with additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a 4 port adapter will also allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple travel chargers for your trip. By only bringing a single USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage as well as being suitable for recharging your Kindle Fire at the airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers and using just a single plug socket.

We suggest buying this type of versatile travel adapter at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
