G day

I am currently working on a few Radio projects in the ute - it means that i need to suss out trying to put a big big alternator in there

What i need is something that will supply 120 amps to my big battery

Just wondering if anyone has done this - maybe for spot lights or the same as what i am doing

If you want to know i want to run some serious power that will draw 80 to 90 amps

Cheers

Just go and talk to a decent auto electrician, they can usually supply something suitable for high amp applications. :D

repco supply a 120A unit im shore. I think it is a general perpuse unit. I fitted a smaller 80A unit to my xf and was just enought for what i was doing but i should have upgraded the main supply cable to the batter as well.
