Simply plug a battery charger into the inverter. It'll still drain the battery, but I think it'll have less loss than the mechanical alternator setup, so it does improve the situation. It sucks less.

Funny thing is that you think that is a rock.. why you think she got the G-Can?

I'm really just thinking .. should we try and catch her when shit happens? Or just kinda stand back and act like we didn't see it coming.

put the alternator on a hole high in the air. when the wind blows, or the b.s. too deep. Oh and bypass (short out) the regulator. remove the diodes. spin fast enough you (2000 - 4000 rpm) and you get 100 - 140 volts AC (3phase)

Remove Alternator, Wind, Regulator and Diodes from that statement and replace them with anything 80 proof +. Now that would be One hell of a Drink ..

It's so simple. All you need is an earth battery to supplement the lost power due to the alternator. Just 43x 30"-spaced holes with a little bit of sulfuric acid mixed into the soil, and seven electrodes of dissimilar metals in the holes.

SIMPLE.

Sounds simpler then Captain GD's making toast using a bike suggestion.

I think I remember I started reading about this somewhere, but then there was a gotcha ad about Britney spears panty malfunction or something and I probably clicked on it.

Ha..


Ok.. It has been a long ride. But I'm happy to finaly produce a Working!!! Rez_arator.


All you have to do is plug this thing into any outlet and you will have free power for hours!! or as long as you can wait without refreshing.
