Re: BRAND New to this Hobby.. starting from scratch
I've wondered that myself. I understand that the magneto won't put out enough power to make much light. I've heard of using bicycle sidewall generators but I don't think they will charge a battery. I'm not sure if they even put out 12 volts most of the time and it would have to be dc current to be used for battery charging. Maybe someone on here has more information about these units.
