For me, an important parameter was the RPM where it reached good output. My first one was fine if I was motoring down the ICW. It reached full output at about cruise rpm on the engine. But that did not work when running the engine at anchor for battery charging. The alternator I have now reaches a somewhat lower peak output, but at about fast idle RPM. I am much happier with it.
