To charge a 12v car battery you must have at least 13v from the charger ..
The amperage only dictates how long it will take to charge your battery .
A bicycle "Bottle Dynamo" (which is a generator) doesn't give much current if you go slow ..
Bottle Dynos are spec'd at 6V around the speed of ~15..20 km/h (...)

I think the voltage is 12v, right? What is the current rating of your battery? That will determine the charging current required, in turn the charging power and so the circuit topology.
Hope this helps.

My guess would be the charger will load the solar panel so the voltage drops well below 12v and then the charger will stop working all together. You can easily try it - measure the solar panel voltage and then connect the charger/battery and see what happens to the voltage. Also, the charger (...)

I think I answered your question a minute ago on another website.
You must look at the datasheet for A123 Lithium battery cells. Their recommended max charging voltage is 3.6V so for 3 cells in series 12v is much too high.
They are not fully charged when their voltage reaches 3.6V each, the charging must continue until their current drops to

My problem is that the alternator runs about 13.75V, to fully charge the battery I need a source of at least around 14.6V. Charging with the 13.75V source only gets the battery to roughly 10% of its capacity.

A typical safe charge rate is 0.1 times the battery's capacity, so it takes about half a day to charge it. If it's a 60 ampere-hour 12v battery, then your charging supply should output about 13.8V and limited to 6 amps.
You can apply several times that much current for quicker charge, but refer to the battery data sheet (...)
