[DML] Re: Delorean electrical system

Funny -- I always that that's why alternators produce more voltage
than batteries in their normal discharge state. Running 13-15 volts
has always had the added benefit of recharging my batteries as well as
powering the rest of my cars.

While it is true that the battery is not physically inserted between
the alternator and the rest of the vehicle, I would argue that by
elevating overall system voltage the alternator very much recharges it.

Note also that a vehicle's electrical system will not work with an
alternator alone, but it will work with a battery alone.
