Varying different voltages and plugs can often be daunting when planning to travel to a new country especially for the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent visitors having to worry if they can charge the iPad 4 when staying in Lithuania.This page has step by step instructions which shows how to charge your iPad 4 when travelling to Lithuania using their standard F or C type Lithuanian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets.

What is the best travel charger for recharging the iPad 4 in Lithuania?

If travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your iPad 4 then the best travel adapter for Lithuania is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Lithuanians use two different standards of wall outlets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your iPad 4 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a four port adapter means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel adapters. Because you are only packing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling as well as being convenient for recharging your iPad 4 at an airport or on a flight. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers with just a single wall outlet.

We suggest searching for this type of flexible travel charger online. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
