Today we finished all of the modules with the exception of the main power module. We installed a reverse voltage protection diode in the hand crank and lantern modules. The lantern was also assembled and wired. The water turbine module was wired waterproofed and assembled. We then concluded the meeting by testing the turbine. It outputted a peak of 17v and ran constantly at 15v. It easily powered the lantern module and could just as easily charge a phone.
