Independent research firm Skajaquoda has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for its new product Trinity, a portable wind turbine power station that folds together into a 12" cylinder that you can carry with you wherever you go.
Trinity is comprised of a simple, easy to use design. The portable turbine has three blades that can be opened to capture the wind and spin, which then generates clean energy. Trinity has a 15W generator and a built in battery that holds 15,000 mAh . Folded inside are three 11” aluminum legs when extended can be configured as a tripod or laid flat. When the legs are folded back in Trinity’s locks turbine blades close and are locked into position. (See Video Below)
The device is equipped with a standard USB port to charge items such as smart phones and tablets, and a mini USB port for charging the device itself. Trinity is designed to allow users to charge a smart phone up to 4-6 times before it has to be recharged either by itself (using the wind) or simply plugged into a wall output.
Skajaquoda is a research group based in Minnesota. Coming from two generations of electricians, company founder and CEO Einar Agustsson and Vice President Agust Agustsson wanted to build upon that knowledge and combine it with their business education to progress sustainable energy technology and create something new.
