Hi Dan,

I find your project very interesting. I would like you to reduce my carbon footprint even if it may seem negligible.

To tell you everything I plan to put one or two of your turbines on my balcony to power a very miniature greenhouse (bonsais) and two or three other things. 12V 0.4A is not bad but is it possible to put several? I told myself that 2 or 3 on my balcony would hold perfectly. With one or two car batteries I could almost never fall short of power.
I have two questions:

  • can I use several wind turbines to charge a car battery at the same time in a simple way?
  • Would not I be better off waiting for your new design with a nema 23 or 17?

In any case, thank you for your work, you seem to be a great guy !!
