There are two different types of wall outlets in Montenegro (F and C) and using a power adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by switching the supplied heads.
