Most people will be able to produce a sustained 150-250W of power with moderate effort. Is that enough for your needs?

you need generator or dc motor (dc motors can be run as generators) you may get dc devices at car service centers afaik a dc motor can output about the same watts as it takes as motor - if you spin it in the same rpm

you can adapt everything else that uses a generator - like wind turbine projects
