My brother and I were talkin about somethin and I said "i'd take a hybrid car but too bad i couldn't put a system in it because I bet the alternators tiny if not non existent"

he then kinda thought that because (to those who know how hybrid cars work) somehow the hybrids batt(s) are charged by the car braking, that a hybrid would be theoretically the best car for a system because a large amount of power is created by the car braking...so much power that the car can run and drive on it.

SOOOO anyone know anything about this, idk i guess i'm bored and maybe he and i are just morons with too much time, probably the latter, but hey just for fun, lemme know waht you guys think

there was a big debate about it on some other forum, and basically it seemed that no one really knew.

hybrid cars produce like 70volts and if thats the case, point out an amplifier that con run longer than 7 seconds on 70v :-)

Off the net:


" Hybrid cars use a combination of a gasoline motor with a high-voltage electric motor. There also is a 12-volt battery under the hood, similar to those found in conventional cars.

The electric motor operates on voltages as high as 500 volts, more than eight times lethal voltage."


As well:

"The Honda has a 144-volt battery pack. The Toyota Prius is 276 volts. Officials say about 60 volts is fatal, but a person could be killed with as little as 20 volts if the skin is wet."


I found these when reading about the safety hazards involved with firefighters who approach a burning car. With the voltage the hybrids are capable of it's easy to see their concern.


So the gasoline engine is coupled with the 12v battery when used. I would assume there is an alternator as well. If the alt is spinning when the electric motors are used I have no idea. I'm no hybrid expert but I'm just throwing it out there.

In Hybrid, battery is like the life line. Why in the world would anyone mess with that? Try replacing those batteries. It'll cost you thousands of dollars.
