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.

Customer Questions & Answers

at what wind speed is it 400W

what wind speed starts the generator and at what wind speed does it max out at 400W
Asked by: RevDave
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.

Can I hook the wind turbin to 24 or 36 volt systems to charge them?

I have a 36 volt bank of batteries tht I would like to get the wind turbin to charge. I do not know how to wire the wind turbin to batteries.
Asked by: Tom
You really need a factory wired 48v or 36v to do this Safely.

Lightweight and fairly easy to install (although we have a very electrically inclined friend-I don't know if I could have done it alone). It works as a supplement to our solar power in the winter, but we live in a very gusty, windy area. It takes quite a bit of wind to actually spin the blades-no gentle breezes, but we are happy with it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought two of them. Not that happy. The wind generator is easy to install. And quality looks good. But the blades are to thin and will not start making power until wind is above 18 mph. I have install at other tower sites 450 watt ari wind generators and they start making power at 5 mph and full power by 15 mph. Will not be buying any more of these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just an ornament 3 blades are so narrow doesn't matter if wind is blowing 10 mph. It doesn't generate as it should. I made a mistake buying this. So many out there start spinning at lower speeds.. it MIGHT work if more or wider blades..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
