The final video could not be uploaded because of security reasons, so here are some screenshots from the video.
There are two wires connected to the motor, which also connects to the LED light. One black, which is negative and one red, which is positive. The wires connect the light source to the motor, which generates direct current as long as it is spun around. The current should flow to the LED light, making it light up.
I was very successful with this project because I could get the mechanics within flashlight to work, creating a light. On top of that, I created the outside casing of the flashlight as well as a handle, making it relatively aesthetically pleasing.
An improvement I need to make with this project is the wooden handle. The handle was not very steady as I did not have enough time to improve it by creating a more stable closure. This caused the handle to move about, back and forth on the handle of the motor. Despite the flaw, the final hand-crank flashlight managed to work quite well; the light ignited with no problem at all.
This project is relatively environmentally friendly, however not to the level of solar panel projects. It required little materials, which most could have been scrap materials. This project would help out the consumer as if they would like to create a simple flashlight in case of an emergency, this would be a simple solution. The flashlight could also be used in other circumstances when some sort of light source is necessary.
