WindPax is a wind turbine system that is light, portable, collapsible and affordable. The system uses wind to generate electricity, through vertical turbines that cup the air to spin impellers. With the use of a removable battery, WindPax can be used to charge any device with USB charging capabilities.
In addition to being lightweight and portable, the system is said to be super easy to set up, taking less than two minutes to do so. It can be hung from any elevated surface, like a tree, or attached to a table or vertical surface.
WindPax currently has two products with a third on the way. The first is The Wisp, which is a 25 Watt unit can be used to charge small devices or LED lights. The second is The Beeze, which is a 100 Watt unit that, according to the WindPax website, was designed for "small villages or campuses." The third and upcoming product is The Cyclone, which will be a 400 Watt unit that can be used as a power source for a village.
WindPax is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help them raise funds for their products. They've already surpassed their goal of $50,000, but you can still donate until June 7. WindPax is expected to begin shipping out their products in September.
