How To Build A Micro Generator For Around $90
This easy Micro Generator project could come in very useful for camping and if the power goes out. It is small enough that it won’t get in the way and powerful enough to run a household light bulb. If you can salvage or re use some materials you could make this project even cheaper… maybe free if you have all of the materials listed.
You can make this project to suit your needs, if you only need a small generator to power your electronics while camping this is perfect, if you want to make this beefier and more powerful, use a bigger battery and bigger solar panels.
