This video shows the build of an extremely useful crank generator which I make from a modified dishwasher motor. Perfect for supplying power or charging batteries at a remote campsite or bunker. This unit can easily be modified to connect to a bicycle. Power output is either a 12V regulated supply(Up to 3 full amps), an unregulated output, as well as a provision for charging a 100F supercapacitor bank.This project can be certainly handy if you’re needing an off grid power supply.If you connected the large wheel to a bicycle, then you could easily charge a lead acid deep cycle battery. The purpose of the capacitor bank is to store the energy for short term use, using a battery would be good for long term storage
