You can hold it at 1500 rpm with no load and it still sits at battery voltage. You have to put lights, heated rear window on to get it to go up to 14.4 volts. Failing that, if you drop back to idle it'll charge for a few seconds and then cut out.
My problem is this : I drive to work with just the stereo on, and unless you drop throttle it doesn't seem to charge at all.
Edit : It certainly shouldn't be showing battery voltage at idle... I've restarted it four or five times to check if it behaves the same so the battery certainly wanted charge.
