Re: Got a generator today - Now a question
Hey Huff, I did some more checking/testing on the generator today........FYI, the bullet light kit/generator package from Bikeworld (Taiwan) has the two taps H and T. When I hooked up the tail light to T, it burned OK. When I hooked it up to H, it got extremely bright. I unscrewed the bulb, and sure enough, the lamp in the tail light was a 6 volt bulb!
Which leads me to believe this generator is putting out both 6 and 12 volts!
I'll tap the H (12 volt) and wire to the + to charge the battery. I'm still not sure about the diode thing. WHY do I need it? What does it do?
