The Micro Windmill Mobile charger is developed by NV Satyanarayana a science graduate based in India.The Mobile charger as the name suggests uses Wind to generate power and in turn charge the mobile phone. The basic working principle of the micro-windmill is Faraday’s law of converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. The wind energy is used to rotate the blade and the rotator is connected to a dynamo. This is a miniature (micro) version of windmill, without a gear wheel mechanism, with blades of different shapes and types, and a portable direct current generator (to be used to generate electricity while travelling). The gadget has to be fixed such that the blade opposes the wind. It is a compact portable gadget, containing blades of 10 cm diameter and a generator of 3.5x3 cm with a specific cable and a jack compatible with the charging socket of the instrument.
Unlike wind mills which have an efficiency of 5 - 15 % wind mills on the other hand have a 35% efficiency. The components are made of Polypropylene and thus are weatherproof and can be used in any weather conditions.
Batteries of Laptops. Handhelds, MP3 players, Videogames can be charged using the Micro Windmill Charger
The Micro Windmill Mobile Charger is currently in development stage and not available for sale.
