      Hi-
      I was getting info from you on the thread about battery charging while riding. Just a couple more questions.
      As a reminder, I have a 6v hub dynamo and have also picked up a 6v battery. I made the rectifier you described. I want to run lights and 6v horn.
      Now,
      Q1: Will the dynamo headlight I have run off the battery, or must it stay on the dynamo power? If the lights have to stay powered by the dynamo, would I run them in parallel with the rectifier/battery/horn circuit? I guess this is an ac/dc current question for the head/tail lights.

      Instead of a battery or the horn, could a capacitor dork...esp given the infrequency of horn use? Or, would just doing a home recharge on the battery make things less complicated than recharging while riding?
      Thanks for sharing your expertise,
