Introduction: Hoverboard Motor Becomes a Hand-cranked Generator!

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

In this project I will show you how to turn a motor from an obsolete hoverboard into something quite useful. We will be building a hand-cranked generator with it that can charge up a powerbank in emergency situations. Along the way I will show you how such a motor works, how we can modify it and how we can turn its AC output voltage into smooth 5V DC for our powerbank. Let's get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 3: 3D Print the Hand Crank!

Here you can find the .stl files for the hand crank. Use them to 3D print your own.

Step 4: Build the Circuit!

Here you can find the schematic for the project along with reference pictures of my finished board. Use them to create your own circuit.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just made your own hand-cranked generator!
