Batteries
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:12:14 AM »
This will seem to be a very silly question, for which I apologise. I assume that in order for the generator to generate electricity, that a battery does NOT need to be used to start the engine? If I just disconnect the battery and hand start the engine will there be any effect on the generator?
Thanks.

The engine will rotate the generator and electricity will be produced.   Hand or battery start.
