Trinity is a portable wind turbine that charges any USB device like your smart phone or tablet.


Trinity folds together into a 12” cylinder that you can carry with you wherever you go.

Trinity has a 15W generator and a built in battery that holds 15,000 mAh It’s extremely simple to operate Trinity.

To open the three blades you simply pull out the 11” aluminum legs and arrange them in either a tripod configuration or laid flat depending on your circumstances.

To close Trinity you push the legs back in and the blades close automatically.

On the bottom Trinity has a USB plug to charge you devices and a mini USB plug to charge Trinity in a wall socket.

    Without any wind vs output curves--Cannot tell if it is even close to practical.

    But--In general, these types of turbines are not very efficient (vs swept area) and being close to the ground would mean very little productive wind (12" tall cylinder on 12" legs?). Usually, we would expect to see the "blades" 30-60+ feet in the air for non-turbulent airflow.

    I would go with a solar panel instead. Much more predictable output.
