If travelling with more than just your iPad Mini the best travel charger for Liechtenstein to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Liechtensteiners use two different standards of wall outlets (types J and C) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the supplied plugs.
