Simple answer - yes. Congrat's on the orders to the newest of the new.
All personal electronic devices, anything which will require ship's power to charge/recharge, will be inspected by the ship's electricians prior to being authorized. It's a simple check which takes all of a minute. This is to ensure proper ground.
Background: The engineers check various grounds throughout the ship every hour. Ground faults have a tendency to cause increased corrosion of the hull. Thus we have the annual inspection of personal electronic devices prior to use.
Every now and again your son will see the engineers "chasing a fault" or "chasing a ground." They're actually chasing down the cause of a ground fault which appeared during one of these tests.
Caution: I have two brain cells. Sometimes they both work at the same time.
