Makspower MP alternator was developed especially to replace the Hitachi 80 A and 60 A alternator.
Why did we do this?
We have known the Hitachi alternator for years. It is solid but lazy. Cold, the alternator delivers around 50-60 amps. But it does not take long before it slows down to less than 40 amps or even less.
If you have consumed a couple of hundred Ahrs or amphours, you are in trouble. Topping up your batteries with the Hitachi 80 or 60 is a hopeless task.
It takes days, if possible at all.
Alternatives to Hitachi 80 alternator?
There are some.
You can buy powerful and famous brand alternators with external voltage regulator that promises very high output.
Often you will have to reduce poweroutput a lot in order to avoid overheating and oscillating charging.
Maybe you end up with around 100 amps of charging, if you are lucky.
And you have paid a lot.
Disassemble the Hitachi 80 alternator and equip it with an external voltage regualator.
This will cost less than a famous brand alternatorpackage.
Your best result will be 70 amps if you are lucky.
On top of that you have lots of wires and connections to maintain.
