Introduction: How to Make a Free Energy Generator

Picture of How to Make a Free Energy Generator

Did you Know that rotating a DC motor generates energy..?

We will be using this technique to make a free energy generator for our projects. The motor here used is a Geared 6v, 50rpm DC motor. The multimeter reading shows that this generator can output upto 16v at 300mA, enough for small projects.

Watch the video and make a free Electricity generator from a DC motor at home..

  3. Ice Cream Sticks -

From Home & Local Store - Cardboard, thermocol (or wooden plank) and wooden sticks.

Step 2: Procedure

  1. On a piece of Thermocol, make space for DC motor.
  2. Using adhesive, paste the thermocol on the cardboard base. Note:Do watch the video for visual clarity of procedure....
  3. Also, paste the motor on the thermocol piece.
  4. Cut a small piece of skewer and tightly attach it vertically to the motor shaft.
  5. Take a small ice cream stick and Drill a hole at the side.
  6. Glue it perpendicular to the skewer attached to motor shaft.
  7. Take another stick and drill a hole.
  8. Attach a Skewer to the stick and paste it on the stick connected to motor.
  9. Our Free Energy Generator is Ready
  10. Connect a LED on a breadboard and Rotate the motor using the Handle
  11. The LED turns ON with full brightness (If LED doesn't turn ON then change the direction of rotation)

Note: I connected about 8 LEDs and a 9v DC motor, this generator did provide enough current to power all the components.
However, I yet did not test the limit for this generator. If anyone one makes this, surely share the experiences in comments section.

cool video #Techgenie

Will it work for a 48Volt-1000Watt DC motor?/...

How much will be the expected power produced from it??...

So, where is the "free" in the electricity? And why did you just glue one bend in the crank and not, say, twenty?

Techgenie (author)ThomasK192016-04-13

I guess the bends i made did solve my purpose. If you can suggest any better design that is this easy to make, with waste materials and also provides firm support with appealing looks, it will surely be appreciated.

Thank you..:)

Well, a short metal wire/rod with the diameter of the bore you have in the shaft bend once to form a crank would certainly do. And again: where is the "free" energy?

Techgenie (author)ThomasK192016-04-13

Actually it is comparatively difficult to find a metal rod that exactly fits in the motor shaft than a simple wooden stick but anyways it is a good idea though.

The LEDs and motor works only with the energy generated by the motor, rotated barely with hands that is the only reason it is named as free electricity generator, we do not need to pay any price for this, except, ofcourse some work done by hands and yes, the setup does cost few bucks.

Actually I react a bit allergic when I read "free energy" since that's in most cases another word for hocus-pocus. Sure, hand operators does not sound that fancy. But as you said, it's neither free for the dynamo nor for the work you need to put in to get out electricity.

Regarding the crank: some thick copper wire or a knitting needle can be used.
