Greetings,

The site states that flywheel based accumulator regeneration isn't allowed. Is it permissible to use an alternator to recharge an auxiliary battery that is not hooked up in any way to the main accumulators?

Thanks

I'm not certain how your suggested configuration differs from recharging the
12V. battery from a stock, engine-mounted generator or alternator.

We would expect that there would be some means (alternator or isolated
DC/DC converter) to recharge the 12V. battery.
