Assembly Guide for DIY Generator Kit
We always deal with electricity in our projects, but have you ever generated your own? This tutorial will step you through building our DIY Generator Kit. The DIY Generator is designed to light an LED purely by spinning a handle. Internally there is a gearbox to increase the rotation speed, and a simple DC Motor that acts as the generator. Spinning the included motor by hand wont generate a high enough voltage to light an LED, so this kit uses the gearbox to increase the rotational speed from the handle to the motor. This gives us a high enough voltage to brightly light an LED.
Please note: there are quite a few small parts here so be sure to keep them all together!
