As you probably know, many hotel rooms require you leave a key card in a designated slot to keep the lights/power in the room on. But did you know that any similarly sized card will do the trick—not just a room key card?
I thought that this was common knowledge among frequent travelers (I sometimes use a business card), but this story has really taken off. In any case, know that any card will do if your hotel room has a power slot. And no matter what, don’t leave your key card in the slot while you’re away from the room (here’s why).
