    Interesting to note in Alex Gardiner guide is

    3. Additionally, a spray of dry-film PTFE spray over the overlap area will improve the life of the pole. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED LUBRICANTS SUCH AS WD-40 or GT-85

    Why not Alex?

    Going by the flow rate of that stream he could also use a water turbine to charge his battery too :D
