I have two separate rectifiers, one for dynamos and one for the 12v bikegen, I considered that.Cold cranking amps? What in the world are you talking about? I think you got a wire crossed somewhere (I do all the time so I recognize the problem,) cold cranking amps are a measurement of how much an automotive battery can dump out at once to a starter motor.
What generator do you own exactly? Might not have to do with the voltage limit, the resistance of the lamp comes into play and without breaking a certain threshold in voltage while supplying enough current you might not get too much more out of it.
Be careful hooking up a generator and 2 Dynamos together one or the other can burn something out by tossing the ac voltage all around across everything else, maybe look into a rectifier circuit that will prevent current from looping back?
I even have a 3rd for the white wire for when I figure out what else to do with it - use it like nitrous oxide on a momentary switch to the electrical system is my best idea.
Cold cranking amps to a light is a vivid brightness we are attempting to generate via a bicycle without a battery, everybody has came back with experiences saying the quality is 10v
