The Essentials

No Cell Phone Charger? No Problem

It’s a continuing problem in many hotel rooms for travelers. You arrive and notice your cell phone is dying and there’s no USB port to plug in.


But actually, there is.


Most TVs in hotel rooms are smart TVs and they have a USB port!


But what if you need an actual charger? You’re not necessarily out of luck.


Just ask the front desk to check its own lost and found, and chances are excellent that another guest — or two — have left one that fits your phone behind.


Just don’t forget, when you’re checking out, to pay it forward and return the charger to the front desk.
