I was thiking that universal  power strips could be part of the IETF provided
equipment like the access-point/networkin gear is. Not sure if there are

definitely think that getting universal power strips is not something
you could leave up to each conference hotel right now unfortunately.

If they charge us more for using our power strips we might be getting cheaper/more coffee or something like that in exchange.
