500w stator vs. 60 amps alternator

hi,

as i've been reading some threads, i think i wll be needing some more electrical power to feed my system (3 hid lights, 2 hid bulbs replacing the oem, 4000 warn winch, probox stereo system with 4 speakers, horn, turn lights system).
what fo you guys recommend me? the utv crap 60 amps alternator system or the 500w stator from sidebyside.

i know too little about electrics and don't know what is better, but i see that the alternator might broke in deep waters, however i think it will produce more power than the 500w alternator.

anyway how is that the matematics work with the 500w stator?
is it like this?: 500w(alternator) minus 100 (teryx needing aprox) minus 105 (for 3 hid lights) minus 70 for the 2 hid replacement oem bulbs) it is equal to 225w still "available" for my stereo and everything else?

just wondering ow this works.

opinions will be very appreciated

sergio,

In theory that is correct. The 500 watts is a particular RPM though.

Todd,
I am also wondering how this stator works. Does it only produce it's power after a certain RPM is reached? If so, what is the RPM level required? What does the stock stator produce?
My odessey battery gets drained down due to my HID's, so I am looking for something that will boost my recharging capabilities. Will the 500w stator work for this purpose?

We are running a pre-production 500 watt stator on our 08 Teryx. The stock stator produces power off idle while the RM stator begins producing power at just above 2000 rpm. We've been running 4 - 35 watt HID's, the headlights and a stereo all day long on the stock battery and have experienced zero issues. On the stock stator we ran the battery down after only a couple hours of trail riding with the HID's.

We should have pricing out this week on the 500w stator.

As I mentioned earlier, I also run with 4 HID's and the HID replacement headlight's but no Stereo and I am looking for something to boost my recharging. Sounds like the 500w will do the trick. Please keep me posted when you know a price. I would like to add this on when I do my motor upgrade work next month.
Thanks for the info.

Thumbs up

Ok guys good news, I have been running the 500 watt stator from sidexside customs for more than a month now and it works awesome. I am running the stock battery with four 55 watt halogens, two led whips, stock headlights, led dome light, and a hand held spot light plugged into lighter receptacle and have not killed the battery to date. When i ran the 4 halogens without the stator i killed the battery in about 30-45 minutes. At idle the stator charges roughly 12.6-12.7 but at a 1/4 throttle or roughly 1800-2100 rpm's it charges steadily at about 14.6. Talk to Endi at sidexside customs, he set me up as a test car and should be close to release if he hasnt already.

$449 retail (mention forum member discount when ordering for best deal)

The kit comes with a replacement stator and a matching rectifier and includes a new pickup coil and a wire for the hour meter display.

A stator is just the stationary part of the alternator. You take a coil of wire and some magnets (either one could be the stationary part). You move one of the pieces and the interruption in the magnetic field produces an electrical current. The faster you spin the moving part through the field (or higher rpm) the more current the device can produce.

I believe the stock system is 14.1V @ 24 amps or ~340 Watts (max)

For the price, I think I would go with the alternator.
