Options and addons for Powerdynamo Magdynos

Is a Powerdynamo Magdyno used in a system without any battery, you will IMPERATIVELY NEED a condenser  > 22.000F in place of the battery.

Failing this, there will not be full lighting power at the headlight. Reason for this is the special way the regulator inside the magdyno works.  You will not need the condenser if there is a battery, but you may leave the condenser installed in parallel to the battery.
The condenser has (like the battery) a plus and a minus terminal and gets connected as if it was the battery. 
But, please know that this is not a battery replacement that might drive a parking light. This will work only with a battery!
