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

Oh...Ok...You can use 6-volt halogen bulbs or LEDs, or even HID lights. You can use a 12 volt wiper motor or an electric window motor to act as a dynamo, which is lighter. But you will also need a voltage regulator to prevent blowing up your bulbs. Have you tried using the white wire that comes out of the engine? I know some guys tried it to power a 6 volt headlight. But I do not know if it can damage the magneto...
Regardless if it's left or wrong, the opposite is always right.

Caution: This hobby is habit forming.
