    Generator and variable input set output

    Okay, so I am doing a stupid project. Lets say I have a small motor that I am going to be using as a generator. It can output up to 350w at 24vdc. I need something that can take ANY INPUT voltage dc and output it to 14.2v dc to charge a lead acid battery. I bought 2 boost converters off of ebay...
