    @rominos2 a fue things bug and ideas for you :>
    idea #1 have be able to "hold" a charge for any amount on time
    idea #2 have it be triggred by redstone power to the sign to tell it to release the power at a given moment.
    idea #3 bigger batterys?
    and of corse the glitcy lever poping OFF when its done discharging whats up with that XD

    I personally don't mind them at all, but I believe adf.ly links are not allowed :/

    It's such a cute mod, yet so useless, haha, been pondering on what on earth I could use it for :D

    I know what "I" will use it for... my son has dreams of being a mad scientist. Sort of fixated on the idea, to tell the truth. We now have plans for two ThunderTower lightning rods on top of a wizard's tower, and banks of Batteries. Now what to power? I have seen a mod for redstone-powered lights, might check that out. Other than that, going to let the little guy figure it out himself! LOL yay for creativity.

    @Fr0zenfr0g
    Will add differents time on each batteries but I don't know how to make it regarding permissions (to avoid that someone create a battery charging in 1 sec and making 100h to power ^^)

    Yes I'll do a tuto in the main post

    You just have to put a sign on a bettry block (configurable, default lapis block)
    write [Battery] and that's it
    Use redstone to charge it and when you want to power energy put a lever on the back of the battery and active it

    You need a plugin to disable redtorch, why? because it is pointless playing with batteries when you have an inexhaustible source of energy in the form redtorch and Lever. Cool would be if you added solar panels or some other resource that requires a means to recharge those batteries.

    @trigger281
    It's essentialy for the RP
    Yes lever are inexhaustiblebut but it's funny to have batteries (with my ThunderTower for example)
    @halvors
    Yes I thaught of that while programming but it's more complicated to manage ^^
    For the moment I just authorize lever to power, nothing more (easyier)
    Is that very important ?

    rominos2

    Yes for the moment, I code it just how it comes from my head
    But I will modify it to create current (better) and not controling a lever

    Just for security reasons. A lot of server admins don't use plugin that not provide the source. Because of the security. (Not that i think your software provide spyware) :)

    rominos2

    Ha ok just to see it if secure
    Don't worry I do not send anything anywhere with my plugin or I would have made something a bit easyier to code to hide it like a plugin who made cakes or something likes that (because cake is a lie you know that)

    It acts more like a capacitor?

    rominos2

    Yes it does. But what's the difference between a battery and a capacitor ?

    well ok, and you could add some non-renewable source of electricity to charge the battery? For example, Furnace + Coal

    For the moment it can just be charged by redstone but yes it interesting
    I add it to the Todo List but it's not the first one to be done

    rominos2

    @ZyniakHD
    For the moment, I'm just updating my plugin
    I don't understand what you called a double battery
    I'll release the update of "the single one" in the next days

    maybe you could link two batterys togheter and more power would be held ;)

    --- Release of the Version 1.2 (St-Evarzec Edition) ---
    A lot of changes, see changelog for news

    @ZyniakHD
    redstone is redstone, there is not more or less power
    but you still can put two batteries charging with the same wire

    Why does @bellardie like all your replies (and why do you follow him and vice versa)? Looks awfully like you're the same person ;)
