That's odd... normally, alternators increase their amperage output while accelerating.

I figured out that I have over-charge protection on my Honda's new alternator, simply b/c when I rev it to 6500RPM, the alternator light comes on. It stops charging so that it doesn't overdo itself. I think that's LOL-able.
