Gudcraft WGV15 Wind Generator


Anyone have one of these, and what's your story? I just got one, I know it's more a "novelty" size, but it should charge a battery just fine. The instructions are rather minimal, so I'll put it together myself, but any advice on installing to the trailer electrical system?

The blades are about 12"

Is there no information that came with the generator?

I did find this on Amazon's website under product description:

"Product Description

This is a smallest version of vertical wind generator, can be around the home, farm, boat, business, or anywhere else where the power is needed. This is a great working conversation piece to show the potential of what can be done with renewable energy today. Not only is it perfect for battery maintenance, it can also be used to power remote lighting, laptops, communications equipment, signs, or nearly anything imaginable that is electronic in nature. You can connect this unit to any 12vdc battery directly to charge it, and then run DC devices off the battery. Or, attach a small AC output inverter, then run your AC powered appliances. The GudCraft WGV15 is popular wind turbine in home yard, boats, advertising signs, telecommunications tower, etc. Thousands have been sold and are in use worldwide. People have the particular inclination for it's clean, aerodynamic lines and its quiet and continuous operation. Without any doubt GudCraft WGV15 accumulates more energy than any other comparable wind generator available. Features: Every turbine is finely balanced. Smooth rotation is ensured Quiet in operation Unique and purpose designed generator The turbine spinning when other wind generators stall Overall delivers more Ampere hours of power per day especially in low to average wind speed"

Thanks guys! The only instructions were for putting it together, but I will call the company to see if they can get me some instructions for actually installing it to the battery. I also have to figure out a way to get it on a pole that can be broken down for moving, but hey, that's the fun part, figuring all this stuff out!
