Just curious if anyone has any experience with wind power? I saw this on the Air Miles site and could help but to think about how this could be used with a trailer, 400W, charges 12V batteries... Wind Generator

There is a thread on ExpeditionPortal.com that discusses this exact wind turbine being used in the field.

Hope you find it helpful. I have a Vertical Turbine but it produces much less power. It is easier for me to setup myself.

Here is an example

I've used a wind generator on a boat. In my case it was an "Ampair." We used it in conjunction with solar panels to generate our "house" power.

I'm not sure I'd use it again. Well, maybe if I were going to be someplace with a lot of wind and no sun. Otherwise I'd probably stick with solar panels. For me, even the "quiet" wind generator made a bit too much noise, and of course on a boat you are usually looking for sheltered places to anchor. It did work very well though -- I can't complain about its actual functioning. And I'm not saying I would never buy one again.

You do have to make sure to mount it where no-one could accidentally put a hand in it.

Can I answer any specific questions?
