U.K. Orange’s wind-powered charger

The communications big-daddy Orange asked gotwind (Ben Jandrell) to design and make wind powered charger for mobile phones. With the 4 weeks deadline to make the prototype, the charger was ready in time to feature at the world famous U.K Glastonbury music festival of which Orange is a key sponsor.

The wind charger generates about a half-watt of power, enough to trickle charge a rechargeable battery. This stored power is then ready for a mobile phone to be plugged into the small control box and fully charged within 1-2 hours (dependent on phone manufacturer).
