Crank up the potential—and the fun! Affordable and portable, this model sets up anywhere in the classroom. Instead of the fixed belt speed of traditional models, you control the speed with the hand crank. Demonstrate the conversion of mechanical to electrical energy, and show whether crank speed affects spark production.

Crank up the potential—and the fun! Affordable and portable, this model sets it up anywhere in the classroom. Instead of the fixed belt speed of traditional models, you control the speed with the hand crank. Demonstrate the conversion of mechanical to electrical energy, and show whether crank speed affects spark production. The 7-1/2"-diam spherical metal globe allows for continuous charge buildup (75 to 200 kV). Measures 22" H. Includes 4" discharging sphere and instructions. Replacement Belt (item #756208A) sold separately.

 
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work! Carolina's customer service is excellent, so the return of this product was very easy. We unboxed our generator and after 2 days of troubleshooting, we never managed to get more than a millimeter spark. We've used hand driven generators before and have never had a problem! There must be an issue with the material of the belt or something. Carolina needs to change the description of this product as well - it's nowhere near accurate!
