We bought a wind turbine advertised to out put 1600 watts from the Hornet Wind Turbine company on e bay and appearanty other internet outlets. Which also appears to be in the UK @ windgenerator.org The unit was purchased it was purchase in the USA but we cannot find and informaton and to contact these people that will work and the dealer in the UK is about as worthless. No response from e mail from his as well This wind turbine is advertised to perform in low winds and will not. We purchased a volt meter and the piece of crap with not charge a battery even in high winds. It will not even reach the voltage not have we seen more than 30 watts from this unit.
Avoid these people at all costs. I looked up the address in google which appears to go to a UPS BOX. I think This about covers it. The d**n thing is a fraud whcih I was able to see clearly as I looked into the other trade name Thermodyne Hydrogen Appliances. Once I googled that one it was appearant I had been screwed. I was sickened watching this video as I have seen with others I have wasted about 400$ with shiping.
We should have known better . It was under 300$ and advertised to make 1600 watts which should have been the first clue. This thing is made from cheap thin gauge metal and what appears to be recyled plastic. The thing will not even turn until the wind exceeds 12 - 15 miles per hour. I am pissed this was only to run minimal electrical need at a camp site and I would have been better off buying a solar panel.
