Please move this to the Unicorn Corral, along with the other electric supercharger threads.

The difference between turbochargers and superchargers is that turbos use otherwise wasted energy from the exhaust to do work, thus increasing efficiency, while superchargers use energy from the engine, increasing power at a cost in efficiency.

And standard alternators wouldn't produce enough power to drive a useful supercharger, anyway.
