The Crank-a-Watt Deluxe Liberty is the most powerful portable emergency survival generator on the market at this time, and makes silent, storable electricity without the use of fuel, sun, wind or dangerous fumes. It is ideal for back up power generation in an emergency, disaster, or offgrid application, and is easy to operate.

SIX TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN THE STANDARD CRANK A WATT
A step up from the Standard Crank A Watt, this unit is capable of charging the onboard batteries up to six times faster than the Standard unit. 

FAST & EFFICIENT CHARGING ABILITY
It takes roughly an average of 15 minutes with the Liberty to charge the two batteries to a full charge. How often you have to crank it up will depend entirely on how much wattage you are using, or how much "draw" is on the battery. The more you use, the more you crank.

As with the Standard unit, the Liberty also has the bicycle crank attachment so that you can easily slide a stationary bike or a bicycle on a bike stand up to the unit and use the bicycle wheel to crank it up even faster (and burn a few calories while you're at it!).

The Liberty unit weighs about 90 pounds (without the batteries inside), comes with wheels for easy transport of the unit between rooms. There is room inside the unit for two batteries (not included), the inverter (included) and other supplies.

Dimensions of the case: 31L x 20H x 24W (does not include flywheels)

Having a back up power source that does not require fuel is key to the usefulness of this product. If you were watching the news during Hurricane Sandy, as I was, you noticed that both battery and fuel supplies were gone within 24 to 48 hours. Unless you have a fuel storage tank ready for a disaster, with hundreds of gallons of fuel, then your gasoline power generator will not last you more than a few days during an emergency. Having a "human powered generator" at the ready will give you and your family peace of mind, knowing that in any situation, at any time, you will be able to create silent, free, electricity for your home and family.

Charge batteries, run lights, laptops, cell phones, TVs, CB radios, Ham radios, small kitchen appliances, power tools, you name it! If you need 120 Volt current to run something, the Liberty will deliver.

Especially important for persons living with medical equipment needs, in apartments or condos where solar and wind generators can't be set up easily, the Crank A Watt Liberty is both versatile and portable. It's safe and reliable energy at your fingertips!

The Liberty uses a dual alternator/generator that is made with a permanent magnet design. The manufacturer (Moeller Engineering) includes a 1 Year warranty on this generator. Permanent magnets are made from Rare Earth Minerals that never wear out. 

CRANK-A-WATT Deluxe Liberty Features:
Patent Pending combo hand crank dual generator. No fumes, no noise. Can be used safely indoors. 
Crank by hand or use a bicycle (Bike and stand not included)
Ideal for first responders, keeps police and fire fighters radios charged and ready
The Ultimate "preppers" tool for instant electricity

Crank-a-Watt Dewalt 400 Watt Bike

  • On Sale! Crank-a-Watt™ DeWalt 400 Watt Bike and Hand Crank EMP Proof Alternator Section 
    Options



    On Sale! This is our DeWalt 400 Watt Hand Crank/Bike Pedal EMP Proof Alternator Section! Save over $100.00 for a limited time!  

     Are you prepared for the next Natural or Man Made disaster? Most people wait until it's too late to own a "Fuel-Less" power source. DO NOT put your faith in a gasoline generator! They're fine for a few hours, but what if the power stays off for days or weeks? There will be NO WAY to find gasoline to refuel your generator. What if you live in an apartment or condo? Gasoline generators are impossible for you folks. You will have no way to operate cell phones, HAM radios, CB's and communication equipment. Batteries, candles and flashlights WILL NOT be found ANYWHERE! You won't have any way to operate household appliances, lights, or even open a can of soup. Don't put yourself or your family in this horrible situation.

The most frequent question we get is this: What's the difference between our generators and the small "hand held" units selling for about $60.00?.. Answer: There is no comparison! Our generators Make and Store 120 volt current that will operate key household appliances, in a power failure or emergency. This is power you can take anywhere. Small hand held units are limited to charging cell phones and ipads.

In a disaster situation, a "Human Powered" generator is the only way your family will have Sustained power to operate Regular 120 volt household appliances. Wind generators and solar panels will not get the job done. They are better than nothing, but very impractical. For instance: What if you must evacuate your home? You can't put a wind generator or a solar panel in the trunk of your car. Solar panels don't work at night, or when it's raining. Wind generators simply don't work most of the time. They are impossible for residents of apartments and condo's to own, where almost 50% of us now live!

More on Survival generators: If you become stranded in a car, at home, on a boat, or anywhere else, it's necessary to have some electrical power. If the power grid goes down, wind-up flashlights and radios are fine, but they don't make electricity for other things like communication and household appliances!

 Caution: do not allow children to operate without supervision! You must allow a break-in period for the unit to turn easier! Do not operate this unit until the battery has been installed. Damage to volt meter will result. Do not store this unit indoors where vapors from the battery could enter living space.

For Hand Cranking
 
1- Unpack the product outdoors and place it on a flat, level surface. Inspect the contents of the generator for damage.
2- Thread the 4" black drive handle onto the 14" pulley bolt. The handle bolt is already installed on the 14" pulley. Hand tighten only. Use the adjustable wrench if the bolt becomes loose. Slide the 3/4 inch drive shaft into the bearings. You may need to loosten the bearings to make this alignment easier.
3- Install the 14" pulley on the 3/4" drive shaft. Applying a very thin coat of Vaseline or lubricant to the drive shaft will make the pulley easier to install. You will need an Allen wrench. *Do not fully tighten the pulley yet!
4- Install the 3" adjustable pulley on the generator shaft using an Allen wrench. Applying a very thin coat of Vaseline or lubricant to the shaft will make the pulley easier to install. *Do not fully tighten the pulley yet!
5- Visually align both pulleys until they are in a straight line.
6- Install the drive belt. Start by putting the belt on the smaller pulley, then the larger one. Turn the handle until the belt is installed. Caution: Don't pinch your fingers!
7- With the belt installed, and both pulleys in a straight line, you can now tighten the pulleys using the Allen wrench fittings.
8- Make sure the drive belt is not too tight. This will make the unit hard to turn. If you must adjust the belt, loosen the drive bearing nuts slightly. Adjust the bearings a bit until the belt is properly tensioned. Re-tighten the bearing nuts.
9-When the pulleys and drive belt are installed, and tightened properly, the unit should operate very smoothly. If there is a wobble, the parts may need to be re-adjusted.
10-For best results, crank the wheel whenever you are operating an appliance. This will help keep the battery from getting too low. Do not drain the battery! The ac inverter supplied with your unit will sound an alarm when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator.
Caution: Risk of pinching. Risk of shock. Keep away from children and pets!
 
For Bicycle Pedaling
 
1- Remove the drive belt from the pulleys. Caution: Don't pinch your fingers!
2- Align the 3" generator pulley to the bicycle tire. Using an Allen wrench, loosen the Allen fitting on the pulley. IMPORTANT This is the Allen fitting nearest to you, not the one nearest to the generator! Turn the adjustable pulley in or out, until the desired width is achieved for the bicycle tire.
3- Restrain the generator case so it doesn't move. A rubber bungee strap can be useful!
4- Pedal at will!
 
Caution: Risk of pinching. Risk of shock. Keep away from children and pets!
 
Wiring instructions
 
The Crank-a-Watt(TM) is equipped with a rectifier that converts ac current to dc current. Dc current is used for charging batteries. Do not operate the unit without the rectifier. Do not plug the unit directly into a wall outlet. The rectifier and battery cables(supplied) are marked with a +(positive) and a -(negative). These go to the positive and negative on your battery. Install the battery cables to their corrisponding terminals only. Do not allow the interior contents of the Crank a Watt to become wet!
 
Installing the power inverter
 
If your unit is supplied with an inverter, connect the POS. (+) RED, and NEG. (-) BLACK leads from the inverter to the positive and negative on the battery. You may now plug 120 volt household appliances into the inverter. Caution: If you install the battery cables improperly to the NEG.(-) and POS.(+) battery connections, it will blow the fuse inside the power inverter! The inverter must be opened to change the fuse. Consult instructions. Remember to crank the handle whenever drawing a load from the generator and battery! Do not allow the interior contents of the Crank a Watt to become wet! Please call or email if you have questions. 513.232.1457 or prestowind@yahoo.com
Notice: Do not drain the battery! The ac inverter supplied with your unit will shut off when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator. Patents Pending Moeller Engineering Cincinnati, Ohio.   
 
Important Battery info: All Crank-a-Watt(TM) models are designed to be portable and self contained. Therefore, the battery must be powerful, yet small enough to fit into the case. Our engineers have specified the Interstate Brand (or equal), lead acid tractor-lawn-utility battery. Although they are not considered deep cycle batteries, they are very robust and good quality products. They operate in an excellent temperature range and are typically 145 cold cranking amps @ 12 volts, which is quite suitable for your Crank-a-Watt(TM) generator. Additionally, a deep cycle battery is not required because the ac inverter supplied with your unit will sound an alarm when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator. The battery can be purchased at Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears etc. The battery cables included with your Crank-a-Watt(TM) are compatible with this style of battery. The battery voucher value is intended to cover the entire cost of the battery and "core" charge. Due to fluctuating battery prices, we can't guarantee the exact price of the battery.
*For best results do not operate your generator below 12 volts.

Please note! The Crank-a-Watt(TM) system will shut of automatically, if the battery voltage gets below 12.0 volts. This is to protect the battery from damage. From that point, to recharge a dead battery, it will take ~ 20 total minutes cranking by hand, and only 10 minutes if using a bike. This is cumulative. In other words, you can do a little cranking at a time, until 20 minutes is achieved. There is very little physical effort needed. It's a very powerful generator.

The Crank a Watt(TM) Emergency Generator keeps your battery charged every time you crank the handle. It will also charge a seperate bank of 12 or 24 volt batteries. These premium units have WAY MORE uses than the small hand held wind-up chargers.

It never needs to be plugged into a wall outlet. Popular "jump start" units must be plugged in after every use, making them very limited in a power outage. The Crank a Watt(TM) is always ready for any emergency.

Attention Preppers! If you're looking for a product that makes electricity without using the sun, wind or gasoline, the Crank a Watt(TM) is a perfect choice. It makes power indoors or out..... Silently!
 
Special Note: When the power grid fails, so do the gasoline pumps. There is no way to refuel your car. If you've planned ahead, and own a golf cart or battery operated vehicle for transportation, the Crank a Watt(TM) is the perfect tool for keeping your batteries charged.

Caution: If you install the battery cables improperly to the NEG.(-) and POS.(+) battery connections, it will blow the fuse inside the power inverter! The inverter must be opened to change the fuse. Consult instructions. Remember to crank the handle whenever drawing a load from the generator and battery! Do not allow the interior contents of the Crank a Watt to become wet! Please call or email if you have questions. 513.232.1457 or prestowind@yahoo.com
Notice: Do not drain the battery! The ac inverter supplied with your unit will sound an alarm when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator. 
 
Important Battery info: All Crank-a-Watt(TM) models are designed to be portable and self contained. Therefore, the battery must be powerful, yet small enough to fit into the case. Our engineers have specified the Interstate Brand (or equal), lead acid tractor-lawn-utility battery. Although they are not considered deep cycle batteries, they are very robust and good quality products. They operate in an excellent temperature range and are typically 145 cold cranking amps @ 12 volts, which is quite suitable for your Crank-a-Watt(TM) generator. Additionally, a deep cycle battery is not required because the ac inverter supplied with your unit will sound an alarm when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator. The battery can be purchased at Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears etc. The battery cables included with your Crank-a-Watt(TM) are compatible with this style of battery. The battery voucher value is intended to cover the entire cost of the battery and "core" charge. Due to fluctuating battery prices, we can't guarantee the exact price of the battery.
*For best results do not operate your generator below 11.8 volts.

    This is the Crank-a-Watt(TM) Special Edition Police and Fire Fighter 400 watt model. It comes in a bright red metal case with reflective tape and exterior power connections. 

    This Special Edition Police and Fire Fighter model includes a 200 watt power inverter and a battery voucher worth $35.00. What does that mean? These units are ready to make DC, and 120 volt AC power "Right out of the box".

    Are you prepared for the next Natural or Man Made disaster? Most people wait until it's too late to own a "Fuel-Less" power source. DO NOT put your faith in a gasoline generator! They're fine for a few hours, but what if the power stays off for days or weeks? There will be NO WAY to find gasoline to refuel your generator. What if you live in an apartment or condo? Gasoline generators are impossible for you folks. You will have no way to operate cell phones, HAM radios, CB's and communication equipment. Batteries, candles and flashlights WILL NOT be found ANYWHERE! You won't have any way to operate household appliances, lights, or even open a can of soup. Don't put yourself or your family in this horrible situation.

Our most frequent question: What's the difference between our generators and the small "hand held" units selling for about $60.00?.. Answer: There is no comparison! Our generators Make and Store 120 volt current that will operate key household appliances, in a power failure or emergency. This is power you can take anywhere. Small hand held units are limited to charging cell phones and ipads.

In a disaster situation, a "Human Powered" generator is the only way your family will have Sustained power to operate Regular 120 volt household appliances. Wind generators and solar panels will not get the job done. They are better than nothing, but very impractical. For instance: What if you must evacuate your home? You can't put a wind generator or a solar panel in the trunk of your car. Solar panels don't work at night, or when it's raining. Wind generators simply don't work most of the time. They are impossible for residents of apartments and condo's to own, where almost 50% of us now live!

More on Survival generators: If you become stranded in a car, at home, on a boat, or anywhere else, it's necessary to have some electrical power. If the power grid goes down, wind-up flashlights and radios are fine, but they don't make electricity for other things like communication and household appliances! Because it's made with permanent magnets, the manufacturer includes a lifetime warranty on this generator. It will work just as well 100 years from now as it does today. Permanent magnets are made from Rare Earth Minerals that never wear out.

Please note! The Crank-a-Watt(TM) system will shut of automatically, if the battery voltage gets below 12.0 volts. This is to protect the battery from damage. From that point, to recharge a dead battery, it will take ~ 20 total minutes cranking by hand, and only 10 minutes if using a bike. This is cumulative. In other words, you can do a little cranking at a time, until 20 minutes is achieved. There is very little physical effort needed. It's a very powerful generator.

Crank-a-Watt(TM)) operating instructions: *You will need an Allen wrench to tighten the pulleys, and an adjustable wrench for the drive handle. Caution: do not allow children to operate without suprevision! You must allow a break-in period for the unit to turn easier!
 
For Hand Cranking
 
1- Unpack the product outdoors and place it on a flat, level surface. Inspect the contents of the generator for damage.
2- Thread the 4" black drive handle onto the 14" pulley bolt. The handle bolt is already installed on the 14" pulley. Hand tighten only. Use the adjustable wrench if the bolt becomes loose. Slide the 3/4 inch drive shaft into the bearings. You may need to loosten the bearings to make this alignment easier.
3- Install the 14" pulley on the 3/4" drive shaft. Applying a very thin coat of Vaseline or lubricant to the drive shaft will make the pulley easier to install. You will need an Allen wrench. *Do not fully tighten the pulley yet!
4- Install the 3" adjustable pulley on the generator shaft using an Allen wrench. Applying a very thin coat of Vaseline or lubricant to the shaft will make the pulley easier to install. *Do not fully tighten the pulley yet!
5- Visually align both pulleys until they are in a straight line.
6- Install the drive belt. Start by putting the belt on the smaller pulley, then the larger one. Turn the handle until the belt is installed. Caution: Don't pinch your fingers!
7- With the belt installed, and both pulleys in a straight line, you can now tighten the pulleys using the Allen wrench fittings.
8- Make sure the drive belt is not too tight. This will make the unit hard to turn. If you must adjust the belt, loosen the drive bearing nuts slightly. Adjust the bearings a bit until the belt is properly tensioned. Re-tighten the bearing nuts.
9-When the pulleys and drive belt are installed, and tightened properly, the unit should operate very smoothly. If there is a wobble, the parts may need to be re-adjusted.
10-For best results, crank the wheel whenever you are operating an appliance. This will help keep the battery from getting too low. Do not drain the battery! The ac inverter supplied with your unit will sound an alarm when the battery is too low to operate efficiently. You must recharge the battery to the proper level before reusing your generator.
Caution: Risk of pinching. Risk of shock. Keep away from children and pets!
 
For Bicycle Pedaling
 
1- Remove the drive belt from the pulleys. Caution: Don't pinch your fingers!
2- Align the 3" generator pulley to the bicycle tire. Using an Allen wrench, loosen the Allen fitting on the pulley. IMPORTANT This is the Allen fitting nearest to you, not the one nearest to the generator! Turn the adjustable pulley in or out, until the desired width is achieved for the bicycle tire.
3- Restrain the generator case so it doesn't move. A rubber bungee strap can be useful!
4- Pedal at will!
Caution: Risk of pinching. Risk of shock. Keep away from children and pets!
