Re: Need to put hotel security in the power slot to make it work?

I have seen this in Mexico as well.
I am guessing the rationale behind it is to reduce electricity costs for the hotel that they can't charge for.
In my situation, you needed to insert the card to get the air conditioning to operate, along with the power outlets etc.
so if you are not in the room, power isn't wasted on air con when it is not needed.

Ah, so you need to leave your card in the slot all the time the electricity/AC is on. This would make it difficult to charge your devices while you are out to dinner.

I can see why management would be concerned about AC usage in warm climates. But I've visited Florida a lot and have never seen this down there.

In Europe we are a lot more energy conscious than the US, which has a reputation for being wasteful of energy.
Simply charge your batteries overnight, when you are occupying your room.
