Question New 12 volt Generator For 2 Stroke

Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone has tested this apparently "NEW" product. Seems too good to be true. Just how much electricity can that one spinning magnet produce? It would be great if electrical fluent people weigh in here.

they've been around for at least 6 years that I know of - they're AC, so need rectifier to charge batteries or run LEDs well - haven't seen one working, so not sure how good they are

do a search for posts that are more than 5 years old

That's IF it even puts out a full 12v AC. Not the best to run lights at different voltages all the time.

I personally don't believe it does.

Keep tabs on the charging thread in the electrical section. I'll have some definitive answers here soon.

Thanks for the reply's. Funny how I missed all previous threads on the topic, and the availability of the fluctuating and supposed 12v AC generator add on. I thought I would of hit upon it by accident as much as I have read this great forum, but never saw anything ever on it so it was all new to me. hehehe...I'm all over it now. Be cool to find out your results Agreen. This stuff is beyond me. I run when I see electricity, sparks, lightning and wires burning.

I have beem looking for this lol.

But yeh not shure. Ir might put out a full 12 volts ....eerr at 10000 rpms lol. I would run it to charge a small 12 v powerwheels battery with a rectifier and a charge regulator. Then power a head lifht and tail light and directionals off the charged battery. This way its sole pourpos would be to charge the battery as you drive like an altinator

Thumbs down Re: New 12 volt Generator For 2 Stroke

When this first hit the boards, I bought it, was not impressed.

It is still setting in my toolbox, along with the weak headlite.

Good idea, but it lacks my stamp of approval.

Awesome motorcycle quality design.
