And you thought “Quisp was for kids?” (or is that Trix?)
NV Satyanarayana, a science graduate based in India, has developed a Micro Windmill Mobile charger designed to use the wind to charge cells phones. It is fan blade connected to a generator with an output wire which connects to your mobile phone.
The big advantage is that the average efficiency of windmills is 35% whereas the comparable solar units are about 15%. According to NewLaunches website, the Mobile Windmill unit is weather proof and lightweight. It can also be used to charge batteries for other devices such as laptops, handheld computers/PDAs, MP3 players and video games.
