Product Overview

Produce up to 400-Watt of power for free in your own back yard. The wind turbine will produce more power up to 400-Watts at 28 mph. If the wind dies down the turbine will continue to produce power in winds as low as 5.6 mph. This wind generator is used to charge 12-Volt batteries and mounts on any 1.5 in. Schedule 40 pipe. This wind generator is a great way to get power to cottages, cabins, work sites, and other places where power from the electric company is too expensive or not available. Power from the wind generator can be used with an inverter to run small TVs, DVD, players, phones, lights, radios, power tools, laptops, fans and electric razors. it has a marine grade coating to withstand harsh environments. A wind charge controller is included with the generator to get the ideal charging current from your wind turbine to your 12-Volt battery or bank of batteries. The body is made from cast aluminum and is safe for high wind speeds, up to 110 mph. The assembly is easy and is only 5 parts, the body, a nose cone and 3 blades. Blade diameter: 46 in.

Answer: 
How is it possible?
It is Wind Power = 0.6* V^3 [W/m^2]
Wind Power = 1.2 [m^2 your rotor] * 0.6 * 9^3 = 524 W but this is only wind power it not stop velocity of wind bihind turbine. Your wind turbine can intercept only 59% of wind power. It said Bernoulie.
Bernouli said that It is power your turbine:
P ~ 0.59 * 524 = 310 W if efficiency is 100% :)
But I doubt that efficiency exceeded 50 %.

I think your turbine have max. about 150W.
What is the power? Maybe it's not about this power comes.
Thanks for the clarification.

Answer: 
18-20 mph winds are needed to produce power from the wind turbine. 20 mphs and over will provided the maximum output of power on the 400W wind turbine.

Answer: 
If you use your own charge controller instead of the one that comes with the unit, you can hook it up to any voltage system you like. The one that comes with the unit is 12/24.

Answer: 
Check your charge controller to make sure it is compatible for wind/solar. Some charge controllers are NOT compatible for wind/solar both. Also,if it is compatible make sure you don't go over the wattage or amperage readings of your charge controller. EXAMPLE:
1.-600 watt charge controller wind/solar 200 watt solar array 400 watt wind turbine this will work.
2.-600 watt charge controller wind/solar 400

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good off-grid product The quality seems good. You need a steel pole to mount the unit on and the manual says 20ft high. I use this product to help provide power to an outlet building. It keeps my 12V AGM batteries charged to run lights and electronics. Charging kicks in around 12mph and best charging after 20mph. This is a perfect compliment to my small solar array. I love using off-grid products! August 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Make sure you install it high enough - Great Product I just finished installing it on the weekend so it is a little early to comment on the long terms quality but so far, I love it! I am getting much more out of this wind turbine than my solar panels. I was advised to install it at least 20 feet high and I am glad I did as it seems the wind is much better above the trees. It took me and a friend most of the afternoon to install it but we did a good job and watching it spin and create energy puts a smile on my face. August 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 400 watt wind gen So far disappointing start as it doesn't seem to generate under 19 mph wind speed. Hope for better after 109 hour bearing break in period August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by i have 2 other wind turbines and like the performance and the value of the Nature Power turbine. I like the watt meter. The green LED light is a little too bright. Good value for the money. June 13, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Soldering? Seriously? If you buy a TV or a Blu-Ray player would you expect to have to solder the circuit board together? Well you have to do a lot of precision electronics work before you're even ready to mount this unit on the pole. I don't mind a few bolts for the props, etc., but this is ridiculous. Shopping around for other units that don't require you to be Nikola Tesla to get it to work. December 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total junk Total junk even with a good wind blowing...with high wind warnings out, blades spinning ...no power being generated. Connections all very well done new unit out of the box...what a rip November 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unworthy I have several wind turbines at the ranch on several cabins, i liked the concept of this unit, but it has never delivered. After many hours on the line with the tech support at nature power, and having done all there recommendations, the unit is still not performing according to there specifications, 90 % of the time with winds under 20 miles per hour it will over speed and shut down. today they said i may have a bad unit, but of course i have to go and find my receipt because they don't do warranty from the factory site....Buyer Be Ware November 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nature Power Wind Turbine 400 Watt Easy to hook up. I had a charge controller that jump around all over the place and couldn't read it. I waited almost 6 weeks before I got a replacement charge controller. I had to order a new set of blades as something hit the blades during a bad wind storm. I also had to wait almost 6 weeks for that order also. They do not answer their phone, as the manager at HD left several messages, and he said they never returned his calls. After getting a replacement charge controller it went out again after 6 days. Then the wind turbine just stopped turning. So if you buy this, and want to repair it a lot, and it is not fun when it is 20' or 30' on a pole, like I have been doing, good luck. HD is refunding my money, and I am buying a different wind turbine from HD, as they have been very helpful with this problem, and others also. December 24, 2014
