# Electronic – Homemade DC generator isn’t outputting much voltage

brushed-dc-motordc motorvoltage

I'm new to electronics and I've made a permanent magnet brushed DC generator, but when I spin it (using a drill to get high RPM) I get an output of less than 1 volt.

I've used it as a motor and it runs perfectly fine. I'm wondering if maybe it's the size of the magnets?
