WindPal Hiker is a portable wind generator for charging small devices. WindPal Hiker uses its vertical axis for harnessing wind.
It is possible to assemble between any two fixed points, for example ground and tree or pole.
It is meant to charge small electrical devices (5V) like mobile phones, battery banks, etc. Charge starts when wind speed reaches 4 m/s (9 mph) and maximum allowed wind speed is 20 m/s (45 mph).
WindPal Hiker is attached to The Base with quick release attachment which makes packing easier. Assembly and disassembly take less than one minute. In rainy conditions it is recommendable to use cover on device you want to charge. WindPal Hiker itself is totally waterproof.
Begin by looking for a place where you can hook up your WindPal Hiker. There shouln't be any obstacles (trees, bushes etc.) between wind and the installation place where you have the WindPal Hiker. The best places are open and high places, especially near water areas such as lakes and seafronts.
Attach The Base and WindPal Hiker with quick release attachment. Place the webbing around a tree and hook the upperend to the webbing. Place tentstakes to cords which are locateded on the bottom of the generator and push tentstakes to the ground. Tighten WindPal Hiker by using linerunner in the upper end cord.
Plug in your device's USB-wire to WindPal Hiker's USB-connection. If rain is to be expected, cover you device and USB connection properly (plastic bag, etc.).
