Stealing electricity

Do you sit down in aeroport lounges, unplug
lights etc. so that you can charge your PC/PDA/iPod/whatever?

Re: Stealing electricity

If someone wants me to charge my phone and has provided a socket on a train or the like, why not? I do occassionally take liberties, the pub where I once worked, still going in and using the plugs, not so good =(

Re: Stealing electricity

Good idea only trouble is I live about 60 mile's from my local Airport so I'm not convinced a 120 mile round trip every 3/4 days is gonna save me much

Re: Stealing electricity

Yes, but only if the plug is not being used at the moment. Unplugging something else is going too far.

You could always try a very long flex and only have to do the trip once.
