Wink Crazy Idea

I was thinking... Is there anyway to install a alternator on a electric cart? You could use a belt from the rear axle, or whatever spins and just keep going?

Thats something I want to find out.

Are you asking if you can install an alternator to recharge your batteries while driving?

It won't provide enough power to compensate for what you are taking out. If it could the big oil companies would go broke and men in black suits wearing sunglasses would pay you a visit.

Nope.... he was asking if he could hook up a alternator to his golf cart so he could attach a electric fence to hold the cows in the bagwell area while he drives

Heres your sign

It would just be more drag and drain the batteries even faster.

Unless a company can come up with a design that has an extremely high output and requires a minuscule amount of energy to turn, you're out of luck.

About the best you could do with it is make the car run longer.


It would be interesting to see if they could manufacture a motor that has a second set of coils that feed back into the batteries.

We put a man on the moon IN 1969!!! I'm sure the technology is available. But, like Roady said, someone would get paid a visit by Exxon's "men in black."
