A good alternator should be putting out 14v at the battery, would be a good place to start checking security of wiring and earths.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
not had any faults up to yet one thing that struck me was it fired up straight away first crack of the key usally it takes about 3/4 seconds o cold cranking
Sounds like the alternator to me mate..

Sounds like the voltage regulator which I think may be built into the alternator depending on the age of your vehicle. This is potentially a dangerous thing to have happen as over-voltage can totally screw the ECU. You don't want to know how much an ECU costs!
I would get it checked before you use it again.
