Does anyone have a horn that is powered off the motor?

Right now I have a goofy bicycle horn that isnt very loud. It seems I could be honking at some idiot driver who is not paying attention every single trip I make. So many people are not aware of bikes. Where would I get a very loud 6-volt horn that I can attach to my bike to let other drivers know they made a mistake/almost hit me/im about to crash into them because they are an idiot/scare the s**t out of my friends?
Have you seen the small, rechargable airhorns? Has an air canister, the size of a 20 oz. water bottle. By rechargable, I mean. you can just pump the canister full with your tire pump. Very loud. just a thought.....
Hmm... not a bad idea at all. I should look into getting one. How long can you hold it down until it runs out? I would probably run out every time I ride my bike.
All the 6 volt horns I checked out suck too many watts with the meager 3 watts that the China Motors magneto puts out. I found a load horn on eBay: The Thunder Horn it uses a regular 9 volt battery and puts out a high pitched 115 db screech that sounds like a smoke alarm that has gone haywire. It seems to get drivers attentions and also freezes deer in their tracks. A 12 volt car horn running off a battery pack works too.
this would be great know i can let them know what they where almost going to run over
I got ahold of one of the AirZound horns and it works great super loud and a lot of blasts from just pumping it up to 80 psi. They are even Coast Guard approved as a fog horn for boats. I ordered some more and will pop some up at a great price in the buy and sell forum when I get them. Maybe it will help some of us from getting tangled up with a car.
