Description

A hand-pulled generator has been designed and tested. A preliminary result has been obtained and discussed. This device was created to provide no outlet and off-grid charging. Nothing is worse than going out into the wilderness and having a phone or a necessary electronic device run out of battery. This presentation overviews the device's design, build, and electrical system. Two different tests are run to prove the device is capable of charging the storage battery. The device presented can provide 14 minutes of charging time with one hour of string-pulling. It is concluded that this device can be beneficial to people with electronic devices that need off-grid charging.
