Its not the Voltage that matters, its the amps

It is perfectly possible to do a quick charge if the socket you're using can handle the amperage required. Most standard household sockets are only rated for 13A (UK) 15/20A (North American)

However a standard 32A socket could easily do a quick charge. and it isn't expensive to have one fitted.

IFPI, RIAA, MPAA

"The International Federation of the Phonographic Industries (IFPI) has slammed The Pirate Bay, saying that it was not motivated by "idealism" and a love of music but was only interested in making bundles of cash."

Can't even get a recycle bin, yet they want to charge us

We live in West Wiltshire District, and we've ordered recycle bins (newly built house) over a year and a half ago. After many phone calls we've given up. We've been promised recycling bins since July of last year.

How can the council justify charging us for rubbish collection, which we already pay for, when they won't even provide the recycling bins, which we also already pay for.

The nearest tip is 10 miles from us, taking recycling to the tip would just raise our carbon emissions from driving further, not to mention additional fuel usage.

Greedy F*ckers

The government will never stop the sales of cigarettes as they don't want to lose all of that precious tax revenue from the cigarette sales.

RE: 4 x $100,000 = $630,000?

The $100,000 is only the energy savings, it doesn't include money saved for having to change the lamps less often, less maintainence, etc
