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 I use this to power a 30 amp system

Asked by: James51
No Not reliably... not as a standalone unit. You will need a relatively large battery Bank and consistent storms... If you would like my advice I suggest you use the same money and buy grape solar solar panel kits from Home Depot they are a lot more reliable, in their consistency of power generation...

Customer Reviews

400-Watt Wind Turbine Power Generator for 12-Volt Systems is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 21.
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.

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 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

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 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 400 watt wind turbine I bought this for two reasons, the first was price and the second was the instore shipping saved me a few bucks. I had seen a very similar wind turbine in a lab at the college I am attending but that was less important to me than the price. I put the wind turbine up and prior to break in, the wind speed to start the blade pin wheeling was 11 mph wind speed. Break in happened over night with 30 mph winds and the blade started to turn at 7 mph. at 9, I would start to see the watts on the meter, and at 11 mph, I had good charging power. since I am studying wind power I am placing the turbine at different altitudes to study obstructive wind flow and power loss on wind energy. Even so, with the unit installed at just about tree top, I was seeing a lot of power, but not the type that would make the system usable. At a level 20 feet above the tree top, the wind power was steady and stable and I was impressed with the model a lot more than I would have thought I would be. easy start up, and strong power output (measured in watts) in decent winds was surprising. (I have read lots of reviews on units and normally I do not know if the ones writing it have a basic fundamental understanding of wind power. this is part of my study as a wind turbine tech) the 3 phase was an easy hookup. I will tell you at full power (rpm on the blades) the blade brake takes a bit to stop. do not expect it to stop as suddenly as the disk pads will do for a move car. the blade tip speed is rated at 270 mph at 28mph winds, and I think this is correct. it does howl, and there is a distinct noise when the blades are cutting into the wind. I have no trouble sleeping through it but I could see some people complaining. for the cost, (including the tower that I built) this is one excellent purchase for use with stand alone systems. (my system is a hybrid solar, now wind, and in the next few weeks, hydrogen generator back up)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
