Watch where you stick it in Singapore

Singapore is a pretty “plugged-in” kinda place, but watch where you stick your charger when you’re on the go. Asia One reported a recent court decision for a girl who was fined $400 SGD (About $313 USD) for using a Mass Rapid Transit electrical socket to charge her mobile phone at a station outlet that was unlocked.
