Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
An idea about a prototype portable wind turbine is studied during my thesis project of the school of Science and Engineering, University of Dundee, Scotland. This device is meant to be carried during outdoor activities by being easily assembled and disassembled in smaller parts. By taking advantage of the power offered from the wind this little turbine can charge small devices such as smartphones by plugging them directly to the generator.
This survey has been created to ask consumers a few questions regarding this product, that will be taken into consideration prior to a possible future construction of the model.
