How long can it work without recharging?

8-12 hours depending on the length of string. Each wind of the string around the drum is 4 hours.

A brief request: typically makers on Thingiverse list non-printed parts required. It appears the pendulum rod is one such. Can you put the rod's required diameter and recommended length into the "Thing Details" section? (and any other parts if they are required).
I'm guessing the rod should be wood, plastic, or carbon fiber to minimize weight?

Good point! I've updated the thing details.

about how long is your pendulum rod?

About 1 meter long for the pendulum rod. You can attach the bob a little higher to speed it up, or lower to slow it down after that.

Alright great start, thanks for responding!
