Travel Tip of the Day: Doublecheck That Your Device is Charging

ChargerDoublecheck That Your Device is Charging
You’d be surprised how many times I’ve woken up to find that my electronic devices didn’t charge because of a dead outlet or because I forgot to flip a light switch or the actual outlet switch (which you often find overseas). It seems like common sense, but always doublecheck that your device is charging before you go to sleep or leave it to charge. That goes for hotel rooms, airplanes, airports, and any outlet, really. I’ve made the mistake. Don’t make it yours.

  1. Good tip. Wife and I both plugged in to charge our iPhones. We learned later my plug was working, hers needed the switch turned on. Have not made the mistake again.

  2. I’ve sat at the airport 20 minutes hooked up to an outlet, not realizing it didn’t work.
