Default Re: Generator output

Do you have an 8 volt battery installed? 7.5 at the battery is still high. If there are 4 caps on the battery it's 8 volts, 3 is 6 volts and 6 is 12 volt. A 6 volt battery should only read 6.4 volts. 10 amp out put at idle is still high, for normal daytime driving more in the range of 4-6 (or 3-5) at idle might be better. As the RPM's increase the output of the generator does too.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas!
