HY Mini Wind Turbine

HY Mini Wind Turbine

We’ve seen a few portable solar-panel devices that can be used to charge iPods and other devices using solar energy. But let’s face it, they’re not much use when the weather’s as lousy as it has been this summer. A more reliable source of renewable energy here in the UK is wind-power, captured through the ingenuity of the HY Mini Wind Turbine.

The name is self-explanatory – the Mini Wind Turbine is simply a little fan that can pick up even a mild breeze and convert it into electrical energy. The energy is stored in a rechargeable battery so you can carry it around with you until you need to recharge your iPod, mobile phone or whatever. It includes a set of adaptors that will fit most types of handset or MP3 player, and for another £10 you can get a kit that lets you fix it to the handlebars of your bike. We kid you not.
