I just purchased a bicycle generator, as can be seen at the windstream power site:

All bike generators that I have ever seen have had several common traits. They all put out AC current, and all can produce 3 - 6 watts of power.

True, James, that the little generators you put on the frame to run your lights are 1-5W; but, with this 10 kg generator, students have been able to output 75W into three lights or 100W into a battery.
