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.

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.

Can this work with a Grid-Tie Inverter?

Will this work with grid-tie type inverters to feed power back into the power grid? Thanks! David

The manual shows it as a locking nut, the one I received is not. So when a gust of wind hits the blades it tightens the nut to a point where the blades will not turn. I superglued the nut for now, but will need to purchase a "Nylock" nut. Second problem is that when the unit receives a gust that spins it over 1400 RPM, it shuts down. So in the middle of the night when you expect to charge all night, you awake to a solid red light, brake on, and dead batteries....If I had known of this "feature" I would have not purchased this unit.

We were really excited about this product for off-the-grid power, as our property is always very windy. Unfortunately, it does not turn consistently, and so our battery reserves keep dropping power with it. It is a lovely sight and a beautiful sound the rare times it does turn though. For now, we are using solar panels and occasionally a gas-powered generator as our source of energy. Going to look for a better wind generator, as with the wind that we always have, it would be a wonderful power solution! 2 months off the grid ... and counting. We are Happy Homesteaders! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from rv roof mount With the 3 blades provided it takes a good wind to even spin. It needs to spin fast enough to be a blur before it puts out power. Sends a very noticeable hum thru the rv if mounted directly to the rv structure. Works good though. I plan on replacing the hub with a 9 or 11 blade one to get better output in more normal wind speeds. Controller is nice, reads output in watts which is a bit of trouble to be constantly converting to amps if that is how you like to monitor your production. This is a partial battery charging option as unless you are in a very windy all the time location you will need to supplement your charging with solar, generator or _shore power. I like mine. Gets lots of looks, thumbs up and conversations for sure.

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 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 4 out of 5 by from RV use I like itI am planning on adding a different hub with more and wider blades for better production in my lower average wind speed. The three narrow blades require more wind than is usual in most places I camp. The charge controller works fine. The three phase output is great because you can use smaller gauge wire from the turbine to the controller.

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..
