What is the best travel charger for the iPad in Luxembourg?

If travelling to multiple countries the best travel power adapter for Luxembourg to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two types of plug sockets that Luxembourgers use (types F and C) and using a power adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPad is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other chargers this means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to buy individual travel adapters. Only needing to pack a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage whilst travelling and convenient for charging your iPad at an airport or on a flight. Because of their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

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