Re: wind generator

Thatís a southwest wind power air-x or air-breeze.

Itís still 12 volt even with a 17 volt output. You need higher voltage to actually charge batteries.

This is either 400 watts or 200 Watts.

Judging by the shape of the blades, Iíll guess itís an Air-X 400 watt unit.

On edit. It looks like primus has purchased the product line.
