  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Hej Roskilde! icon_smile.gif Vi er nogle drenge der er i gang med at bygge et festival anlæg med bilbatterier, og trods at det er vores andet år, er vi i tvivl, om man rent faktisk kan få opladt sine bilbatterier på Roskilde. Kan man det?

Hej Jannik. Ja det kan man! Så vidt jeg husker så er det samme sted hvor man oplader telefoner (;

Sally is correct. It costs some dough though. You're better off charging your batteries via alternative means – solar power for example.

"Some dough" is an understatement. Last year it was DKK250 deposit for them to accept the battery, and DKK150 for per recharge. The deposit is returned at the end of the festival.

There isn't car battery charge at every Agora, only at a selected few ones.
...also the waiting time can be quite long, because of the increasing number of car battery users at the festival.

Last info, the charging time is not very fast at these stands - about 8 hours for a 40 amp battery, 11 hours for a 55 amp battery, and 24 hours for a 120 amp battery.(5 amp/hour)
Have a nice festival!

Hi

We just wanted to let you know that we have 3 free charging stations on the camping area. If you can bring your own charger, you're more than welcome to simply plug in.

The exact location is still undisclosed but you can find us in the programme. Or simply look for the big, floating Bibob guy.

Cheers,

Bibob

How is this relevant for car batteries?

Hi Jim

We're just telling him, that if he brings his own charger he is welcome to plug it in at one of our stations. Simple as that really.

Cheers,

Bibob

Even for car batteries? Are you sure?

You know there's some environmental concerns and the possible risk of explosions connected with that.

I'm only asking because you do not want to witness the backlash reactions of people having dragged their 65kg batteries and 30A chargers to your stations only to be turned down.

We will have to discuss the safety and environmental issues with the festival, but if they don't raise any concerns, we will be happy to help people out. It might be a tad naïve, but we don't expect to be overrun by hordes of people with monster 30A chargers.

Cheers,

Bibob

That is naive.

Although they may not all be 30A chargers, there are literally thousands of people at the festival with car battery chargers, either built into the equipment or external.

Expect to turn away hundreds of people every day.

And who will be looking after the batteries for the many hours they take to charge. Some more than 24....

I'd like to know that too. It's not worth it if i have to sit and watch it charge!

That too. It is naturally nice that Bibob offers to use their power outlets for free, it's just that in this case I don't think they have really thought about the vast number of problems it will create.

There's a vast difference between small batteries for mobile phones and large car/leisure batteries.

There's a reason the festival itself have separate stations for recharging of those types of batteries and that they cost so much. It's because the health and safety regulation inspections, as well and insurance cost a lot of money. They also need trained people to handle them and make sure they are connected correctly so they don't explode (a standard car battery holds the same explosive power as a stick of dynamite but is filled with lead plates that act perfectly fine as shrapnel).

Hi

Thanks for the feedback and advice. It seems we really haven't thought our offer through. icon_redface.gif

As far as we know at this point, there will be a battery charging station available at every Bibob FreeCharge. But it will probably be run by the Roskilde Festival in which case it probably will cost money. That is still subject to change.

We'll make sure to update this thread as soon as we have more information.

Cheers,

Bibob

Thanks.

Really just looking out for your best interest here. It would be horrible negative publicity to announce you could, and then come festival time have to withdraw it.

Cheers
