  • Alternator

    After hooking up my carputer, amps, screen etc.. my voltage has dropeed a little it seems it is know around 14 instead of 14.5. This is not good. What would be better, replacing alternator or replacing battery.

          the more amps the better yes..
          the volts the better no..

          nothing in the car is made to handel more than 14v..
          if anyones ever had a busted regulator and run a car on 16+v u'll know it start cooking things. esp on new highy computerized cars
