The Windpax is designed as a vertical turbine and works by “cupping” the air using three collapsible fins to spin the turbine and create power using an internal generator. Inside the turbine there is also an internal battery stick that has USB and Mini-USB hookups. The battery is removable and can be reattached easily by sliding it into the turbine shaft. In other words, gadgets and devices can easily be charged straight form the turbine, or from the battery. The Windpax turbines can be set up in less than 2 minutes and are capable of generating power from a breeze. As an added safety features, the fins used by the turbine are made of plastic to avoid accidental injury.
