The GIGA 5V Turbine uses wind power to generate electricity so you can charge electronic devices anywhere you go

Spotted: UK-based Windward Engineering has created a portable wind turbine to charge electronic devices. Unlike portable solar panels, it can charge day or night.

The GIGA 5V turbine is waterproof and portable. It weighs one kilogram and is 325 mm across. It can start charging from 8mph of wind. At 14mph the turbine will output 5W, according to the company.

The turbine is a variation of the marine wind turbines the company produces for battery maintenance on yachts and other types of vehicles. The GIGA 5V is currently available through a Kickstarter campaign for £99.
