Portable Wind Turbine – Trinity

These small-scale wind turbines are able to power cameras, smartphones, tablets and other gadgets on the go. The turbine also allows you to charge devices anywhere in the world with clean wind energy.

Trinity is available in 4 sizes with “50, 400, 1,000 and 2,500 watt generators storing energy 7,500 to 300,000 mAh Li-ion batteries”. While the smallest size is portable and lightweight, the largest size is able to power a small house. The set-up of Trinity is surprisingly convenient as it only requires the user to pull out the blades of the turbine and arrange the legs laid flat or in a tripod configuration.

Energy generation is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions due to the widespread use of fossil fuels including coal, oil and natural gas. Thus, this renewable energy generator will help reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change and global warming. Unfortunately, the company which has released Trinity has not updated their website on the product since 2014. However, other similar substitute products have shown up in the market.
