The Prestolite AVi2800 features a streamlined fan design which offers 33% less weight than any of its antecedents. This new internal fan alternator is also offered with an expanded temperature rating to +125°C. These improvements significantly optimize AVi2800 cooling efficiencies, particularly within higher temperature environments.

In addition, the new AVi2800 includes an additional 30 amps (190 amps, as compared to 160 amps for legacy models), allowing it to provide substantially more power at idle.
