Hi group,
i think 32 volt as stand alone voltage is a bit caught up in the original AC/DC debate.
I know 32v was used in mining and marine ....also steam loco's. Aircraft used 28v which was often
wound up to 32v for many war surplus applications.
A major focus of mine is the smaller companies that popped up to fill the demand for small scale power
demands after ww1..... eg/radio battery charging.
Has anyone heard of Dick Spry who made the Sprylite originally in Parkside (Adelaide.)?
Wunderlite was also made in Adelaide...a wheel that looks like its of windmill origin. ?
Impcolite...was it Hannan Bros Freelite based??
