Can someone advise how to measure output from a bike generator/dynamo ? Answered
This is the type that clamps onto the seat stay and is meant to rub the tire for the generating action. It's labeled 12V, 6W, Made in Japan. Two terminals, H and T. I've hooked it up to a meter and the only setting that gives me any sort of reading is AC volts with either H or T and to what I assume would be chassis ground. That gives me between 3.7 and 4 volts when I spin the unit with a cordless drill. Is this thing functional or not? And what would be proper wiring connections for it? Many thanks!
