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

Uncle, according to the seller, the alternator is single-phase and can be hooked up directly to the electrical equipment with diodes.

I'll be doing more research to see what I can install in place of the 12-pound SLA battery.

The seller mentioned that this alternator weighs less than 23 ounces, or 1 lb. 7 oz., and my Chevy alternator weighs almost as much as my Mits engine.

(Sigh) My hard head won't accept the windshield wiper motor, and is stuck on this overkilling 100-watt miniature alternator.
