Volt - keep your smartphone powered up
In cooperation with Volt, Roskilde Festival now launches a new charging service making it possible to charge your smartphone in your pocket so you can share your festival experiences with your friends without having to worry about running out of power.
Volt recharging service
You rent a small mobile battery that fits virtually all smartphones. When the mobile battery is low, you can exchange it for a new fully charged mobile battery 2 times a day, so you always have a charged smartphone. Charging service costs DKK 200 (approx. EUR 27) during the festival plus a deposit of DKK 200. The online presale service can be purchased for DKK 180 (approx. EUR 24) rxcl. deposit and payment fee.
Volt is centrally located in CITY Centre East and West. You can swap the battery and sign up for the charging service at the stalls. Volt is open from Saturday June 29 to Monday July 8.

The lamp that never goes out
It’s a solar lamp that will provide light for late evening camp cosiness, and you can attach it to your pavillon and bring it when you leave your camp. And the next day you just put the lamp out in the open and it starts recharging.
Facts about the Little Sun solar lamp:
5 hours of charging in natural sunlight creates 3 hours of bright light (plus additional hours at lower light).
The lamp will charge in overcast weather, though it takes a bit longer to reach full charge.
The Little Sun lamp emits an amount of light comparable to that of a desk lamp.
The lamp's built-in solar panel means you can take it with you all around Roskilde Festival.
Little Sun's battery can be recharged at least 1,000 times (the equivalent of around 3 years of daily use) before needing a replacement.
When you buy a Little Sun solar lamp, 10 Danish Kroners go towards the purchase of solar panels for schools and health centers in Uganda by Energi Nords Lys i Afrika (Lighting Africa) project. In addition, by purchasing a solar lamp, you ensure that a family in Uganda can buy a Little Sun solar lamp at a reduced price they can afford.
The solar lamps are sold through the Little Sun project, which works to set up small businesses in areas of the world without electricity, creating local jobs and generating local profits.
So buy one for yourself and help a family in another part of the world.
