    Hello !
    im doing a project and I need to know if synchronous battery can charge a 12 volt battery (motorcycle battery to be exact)

    The project I`m doing is like a generator which includes battery and an inverter. I want to keep it low cost because having car alternator is too expensive

    Thanks in advance

    Synchronous motor?
    It depends on the technology used in the motor.
    If inductive/reluctance then usually no, If P.M. then it could.

    These motors normally won't generate anything practical, also you may have a problem back feeding it with the gearing in place.

    A M.C. battery needs more current than that motor can supply anyway.
    You could look for a DC brushed motor at a automotive wrecking yard.
    Often had cheap.

    That might be reluctance only like ye-olde electric clock - stepper motors have magnets.
