Why wouldn't it? I've seen cordless drills last for 10+ years as a drill under heavy use (with the occasional battery replacement), why wouldn't it work as a generator for a year or two?

EDIT: Not trying to challenge you or anything, I'm just trying to learn the whole "generator effect thing", what works, what doesn't, and why.
