Welcome to another "AlterNAUGHTer"

Good on ya!

I've been a bit of a alternatorless evangelist so I'm happy to have another convert.

10% is huge when it come to ecomods. Nice work.

Just by coincidence, I finally installed my ammeter and voltage gauge today and boy do those brake lights eat up amps! LED's coming up.

My soon to be realized plan is to run three 6 volt deep cycles. 18 volts is a bit high, I know, but I think there are more gains to be had from keeping the voltage well above 12. Better yet would be 2, 8V deep cycles but I'm getting some t-105s for free so I'll take what I can get.

Good that you can pop on your belt so quick. I usually keep a yellow top for my backup because I have removed my alt. completely. Idealist? or fool?

What's your resting voltage after a commute?

Good luck!
