Various combinations of standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to travel to another country to the first time traveller. This page contains step by step instructions which shows exactly what you'll need to charge the iPad Air 2 when you are visiting Lithuania using their standard Type F or C 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power sources will vary from country to country so we recommend that you read the Wikiconnections global power sockets page where you'll find a complete list showing charging devices in different regions. When you are visiting Lithuania from another region please double check your iPad Air 2 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check your iPad Air 2 is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you intend on visiting a Lithuanian destination such as Vilnius or Kaunas please read the wikipedia.org entry about Lithuania [1] for more indepth details on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you've downloaded Apple iOS 7 or greater on an iPad Air 2.
