  1. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    20kW/d would be 27PS/d ! (you immediately see that the units are wrong) keep the units right! kw is power and kWh is energy. If you have a generator that produces 1kW (power) and you let it run for 5h you get 5kWh (energy).
  2. 2019, an espresso odyssey

    I wanted an espresso machine and a grinder at a reasonable price. Amounst the cheapest machines that they recomanded in were the Rancilio Silvia and the Graef CM80. I bought them 7 years ago. No problems. Still available.
  3. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    Your solar panels produced 5kWh over the day! Or for people from the island 17000btu.
  4. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    Your 1 kW panels produced 5 kW. Where did the difference came from? A subvention from the German goverment?
  5. Pointless plastics..

    I managed to change the batteries. The safety razor is working again. There are so few things nowadays that can be repaired.
  6. Why are you unhappy today?

    A normal bike in Schleswig-Holstein? Impossible for untrained people! Too many montains!
  7. Pointless plastics..

    I think I ordered it from Amazon marketplace. I needed 2. With delivery 25€. Now I found that I don't have a Torx T8 screwdriver. Another 5€ Why doesn't the EU force the manufacturer to make the batteries replacable? They also did that with the headlights of cars.   To find an "Akku" (in germany recharchable batteries are called Akkus) just google " Braun Zahnbürste 'the type' Akku" I found that an Akku will cost 10€. So, only for people who refuse to through a tooth brush away, just because the akku is weak.

    Quite simple: All cables have a certain cross section. If you have 30 houses, a 100m cable running to the houses and you assume the current in every house to be 20 A then you would install a cable with a cross section of 270mm². If the owners of 5 houses want to install water heater with 20kW or chargers with the same power than they would need a cable with a cross section of 400mm², othewise the voltage drop would be to high and the cables would get hot. The same reason why you can't install sockets at lamp posts. The cables are to thin. They only have the right diameter for the lamps.

    Power is measured in W(att)! V is the potential difference As far as I know they only garantee 230V+/- 10% The electricity meter you find in every house measures the energy you used. I don't see, where energy is dissipated.
  10. Why are you unhappy today?

    Last week I called an old friend of mine and she told me that the doctors found a shadow on her lung. Possibly cancer. When we lived together (20 years ago) , she stopped smoking. (I refused to lick an ashtray.) However, after she left me, she married a smoker and started again. It knocked him down when she told him about the result of the examination. He immediately had to light a cigarette. I'll never understand why people are so keen on smoking. They risk their lifes.
  11. When our house was built we had a consultant from "Verband privater Bauherren" or "Bauherren Schutzbund", I don't remember which. Luckily there were absolutely no problems. (You can only have their support if you are a Herr, Damen and Diverse are not supported. )
  12. An Aussie In Germany: 10 Things I Learned in My First Two Years

    In my opinion the opening times now are already too long. The employees (mostly women) should have a chance to spend more time with their families. If shops would close at 7pm in the evening from Monday to Friday and 4 or 6pm on Saturday that would be ok for me.
  13. Ukrainian Passenger Plane 'crashes' near Tehran

    The Iranians have a lot to do if they want to weld all the holes in the fuselage before the foreign experts arrive.
  14. consumer protection in Berlin

    After they tried six times to repair the car, I would say get a laywer and return the car. I found this at the ADAC.
