I have a 12 V DC with a gearbox motor that I want to use as a generator to charge a 12 V battery, how do I do this?
If I connect the motor directly to the battery, the motor starts to spin, how do I prevent this from happening?
The battery is a 12 V Li-ion battery pack with a BMS attached. The idea is to connect the motor in a gas powered motor that I am putting on a kart. The battery is for powering lights and other low power stuff. The BMS does not have a input power, only two terminals a positive and a negative.
