How stuff works

    • If you want to get up to speed quickly or revise the basics, this 50 minute tutorial based on a Restart training session is just the thing!

  1. How stuff works, Electrical Theory 101: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • If your volts, amps and ohms are a bit rusty (or even non-existent) then we have a simple introduction that anyone should be able to follow.

    • Start off with Volts, Amps, Watts and Ohms - what every Restarter should know.

    • So what's all this AC and DC nonsense all about, and why should I care?

  2. How stuff works, Electronic Components: step 3, image 1 of 1
  3. How stuff works, Batteries - power to you!: step 4, image 1 of 1
    • Batteries come in all shapes and sizes, and different types, some rechargeable and some throw-away. Here's pretty much all you need to know.

  4. How stuff works, Build on all you've learned: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Finally for this section of the wiki we cover:

    • Electric motors - different types and how they work.

    • Power supplies - they quite often fail, and to fix them you need to understand how they work.

    • How Radios Work. They contain a mass of components but if you at least understand roughly how they work you'll stand a much better chance of fixing them.


Now, you're an expert!
