DIY 12v-100w wind generator


               Original blade design                                                                                     Latest improved blade design


Quite a jump in power from the dynohub projects, this DIY wind generator really does provide a good amount of power to charge your 12 volt batteries.

Using readily available scrap parts and a bit of ingenuity it can be constructed for a very little cost, and is comparable, if not better than

commercial products!

I've had a lot of fun making this latest generator, it can produce over 8 amps at 12volts.
