Default Re: Can My Chevy Alternator Run My Bicycle's Cigarette Lighter?

I think the major factor would be the weight. The alternator is too heavy, and you would not need that much electrical power on a bicycle. You can just use a dynamo hub, or attach a dynamo either to the chain or wheel for your electrical needs.

Just carry a cigarette lighter or a match than a 1kg alternator on your bike for your cigarette lighter...
Regardless if it's left or wrong, the opposite is always right.

Caution: This hobby is habit forming.
