Special considerations for safety aspects!
In reply to Nikonicon, 10 months ago

Glad you found the answer so quickly Roger. I'm a Brit who lives in rural Spain (10+ years) and as have no problems (recharging, that is - don't mention language with technical issues for telephone and electricity companies - Grrrrrrr) was going to offer advice to cover all eventualities.  I do occasional photo trips and use hotels (to clarify).

Hope you have a great visit.

Regarding anyone saying it is a silly idea - it is done not just for saving electricity consumption but more for safety from electrical fires when people leave a room with items plugged in and no occupational supervision. There is no restriction on consumption when any room is occupied - and thus much greater safety for everyone in the hotel when "others" are not in their rooms.

Minor inconvenience = greater safety for all! BTW - very few hotels in Spain actually have that more modern safety installation.
