• Each generator is capable of a typical output of 6V at 30mA
• Learn about energy transfers

What can I make with this kit?
A great kit for a group activity. Up to 10 people can build their own miniature generator. Create your generators and see how much power you can produce. The generators (manufactures code PAC 910) transfer power from the hand crank to the mini DC generator which can produce around 6V at 30mA - this is enough to power a transistor radio. Coming in 21 pieces the kit has instructions on how to assemble. This kit is suitable for ages 11 and over with adult supervision.

What can I learn?
This kit show how you can transfer energy. From the hand crank to the generator you are transferring kinetic energy from movement to electric energy. Using kinetic energy to produce power is the basics behind light dynamo on bicycles and wind-up torches.

I am using the class kit but with students some of the gears are getting damaged, particularly when they use the larger spindle. Is it possible to purchase the gears? Other kits on the site do not fit.

On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
