Correct. It's a good and flexible system.

It's a good system - I travel a lot (unlike the OP, apparently) so I am familiar with all of these electrical environments. The card controlling electricity is a cost-saving measure for hotels, especially those in regions where the weather encourages use of an air-conditioner. As mentioned, some ports are still active for chargers or other low-voltage uses.

Not sure why the OP is surprised and puzzled by this - it's been normal for a number of years. Last year, in a hotel in Pyongyang, I noticed the same system.
