Reasons To Get a High Output Alternator
Do you have a car battery that’s constantly down? One that can’t seem to keep up with the fabulous upgrades you’ve installed in your vehicle – new headlights, a stereo system, power seats, and so on.
Don’t worry. Your battery is not the problem. Have you upgraded your car’s alternator yet? Have you installed a high output alternator that can provide the current that’ll support the upgrades?
This article will discuss what high output alternators are and their benefits.
What Is a High Output Alternator?
To start, an alternator is a small machine in your vehicle that generates the electrical charge for your running car and charges your battery. Every alternator has a limit to the number of amperes (also called amperage) that it can provide.
The alternators installed in cars fresh out of the factory are called stock alternators. Amperage capacities differ among car models.
A high output alternator has a higher amperage than a stock alternator. For instance, the stock alternator for a standard 2018 SportBack Buick puts out about 150A. You can get a Buick high output alternator with an amperage of up to 320A.
The primary function of an alternator is to provide your car with enough electric current to run efficiently. Therefore, a high output alternator gives your vehicle more amperage, causing it to run smoothly and increasing the car battery’s lifespan.
Benefits of a High Output Alternator
1. Meets up With High Amperage Demands
Depending on the strain you’ve placed the car under, an alternator has to provide the necessary electrical charge to suit those vehicles.
If you have some heavy-duty audio system installed, the car will need more amperage. Other upgrades include lights, infotainment systems, and seats with heating and cooling systems.
If you install the needed high output alternator, you can comfortably run your car at the fullest capacity.
2. Makes Your Car Battery Last Longer
Alternators charge your battery and provide it with the charge the battery needs to run.
If you have a stock alternator and a car that requires high power, your alternator will undercharge your battery. This leads to batteries running down faster than expected.
