Liechtenstein power outlet

Varying complicated frequencies and standards can often be daunting when planning to stay in a new country especially for the first time traveller. This simple guide tells you exactly how to supply power to the mobile phone when you're in Liechtenstein using their standard J or C type Liechtenstein 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. You will find power supplies differ depending on which country you are travelling to so please read the Europe and power supplies page for a full list of regions and countries. When you are visiting Liechtenstein from another country make sure that the mobile phone can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. If you're planning on staying in a Liechtenstein city like Schaan or Vaduz we recommend reading the Wikipedia.org web page about Liechtenstein [1] for more details prior to visiting the location.

These instructions are for a generic mobile phone and assume the phone has a standard micro USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and a headphone socket. For all the latest phones visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
