Going to Lithuania in May electrical advice?

Assuming war doesn't break out there too, i will be goig to Lithuania in May for a salsa festival (salsa scene in Lithuania? Believe it). My first trip to Europe (going to a major cultural center? Uh, no, going to Vilnius) and I'm wondering if i need a 220-110 converter for recharging my iphone and laptop/ipad, whichever i decide to go with. Or would a plug adapter do?
Any advice about going to Europe with electrical devices would be appreciated.

Actually if your laptop power supply is an original Apple product, it will self-adapt. You just need something so the prongs will connect. An unpowered plug adapter is all you need.

I had nothing with me but a plug adapter in Hungary in 2008. My laptop power supply even back then was 110/220 50/60. I got a 3rd party camera battery charger that ran off of USB, and I charged with my laptop.

Most modern chargers will accept 110-220 volt input without issue.

It's hairdryers, curling irons, etc that won't. Typically anything with either a motor or heating element requires a converter.

Add power toothbrushes and hair clippers to your list.

You can get the plug prong converters at Amazon or maybe even Target. They usually come in a set. Take all of them, just in case, but there should be just one that works for that area.

The chargers should say on them that they support 120-240v

Adapt.

Improvise.

Overcome.

Plug adapters are enough for most things. For sure chargers and laptops. Just make sure it says 220 on it or it will get fried. I had one router that went cheap on the power supply and it was not self switching. Alternately you can get one plug adapter and plug a US power strip into it to support multiple devices. (Though I don't know if that is code or they are rated for that but we do it all the time)
