This Wind Turbine Might Be the Ultimate Backcountry Power Source

Wind Pal Wind Turbine

This lightweight wind turbine makes for easy access to power when off the grid.

Sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo make it simple for brilliant minds to share and test their next ideas. These often come in the form of innovations in the tech space, and that doesn't always mean a new application for your phone. Introducing the WindPal: an exciting new wind turbine idea for those of us who like high-tech luxuries while still being off the grid.

WindPal is a lightweight turbine constructed of nylon fabric and aluminum. With an output of 5 volts at 1 amp, the device should deliver a slow, steady charge for any of your electronic devices. The whole setup weighs in at less than 2 pounds. The power supply can begin producing a charge in as little as 8-mph winds, and will reach maximum output at a wind speed of around 20 mph.
