6 or 12 Volts, what should I choose (previously 6 Volts)

6 Volts actually belong to the past for a long time. Lower voltage decreases the performance but increases the current flow (and the corrosion on the connectors).

What is the difference between 6V and 12V Powerdynamo systems?
  • the ignition part is completely the same
  • different is the mains voltage for lights and the power
  • the regulator of the 6V version has no connection for charge control
What should I change if I switch to 12 Volts?
