Obsessed by the improvements of StarTrek and the fourth millennium, while feeling restricted by the limits of today's technology or that boring second law of thermodynamics? Just let your imagination flow - you needn't be Scotty to beam your thoughts in here!

Have you ever wondered why Almost all electric cars need battery banks that are not self regenerating? Why not simply add multiple alternators onto a shaft connected to the rear axle of the vehicle and use the kinetic energy of the forward motion to charge the batteries constantly while driving? I understand that the forces on the alternator would be great if not geared to reduce the speed and prevent overcharging. A simple clutch system like the one on an auto air conditioner clutch would work just fine for this application. Disengaging when the batteries are fully charged. Ideally a series of alternators could possibly negate the use of batteries altogether if enough amperage were created.

Reward: $2600 dollars a year fuel savings and not needing to constantly recharge a vehicle = Less pollution from Electric company. Less batteries for land fills.
