Product Description

Features: Every turbine is finely balanced. Smooth rotation is ensured Quiet in operation Unique and purpose designed generator The turbine spinning when other wind generators stall Overall delivers more Ampere hours of power per day especially in low to average wind speed. This is a smallest version of vertical wind generator, can be around the home, farm, boat, business, or anywhere else where the power is needed. This is a great working conversation piece to show the potential of what can be done with renewable energy today. Not only is it perfect for battery maintenance, it can also be used to power remote lighting, laptops, communications equipment, signs, or nearly anything imaginable that is electronic in nature. You can connect this unit to any 12vdc battery directly to charge it, and then run DC devices off the battery. Or, attach a small AC output inverter, then run your AC powered appliances. The GudCraft WGV15 is popular wind turbine in home yard, boats, advertising signs, telecommunications tower, etc. Thousands have been sold and are in use worldwide. People have the particular inclination for it's clean, aerodynamic lines and its quiet and continuous operation. Without any doubt GudCraft WGV15 accumulates more energy than any other comparable wind generator available.

A waste of time and energy.

When the pillar is connected to the generator the axis extending up from the generator is not vertical.

It comes unassembled, and no instructions.

I purchased this wind turbine because I like the longevity and stability of the VAWT design and because I was looking for a small device that could power small battery packs for use in extended camping.
The product came securely packed in foam with no damage to any of the parts. As I removed the parts from the packaging I immediately realized that the list price of this product should probably have been no more than $40.00.
The generator assembly and the pillar are quite heavy and appear to be made of cast iron. They are much larger and heavier than a 50W generator I already have. The entire device weights 72 oz (4.5 lbs). The pillar alone weights 19 oz with the generator taking up most of the rest of the weight. The generator assembly spins very smoothly. When the pillar is connected to the generator the axis extending up from the generator is not vertical. It appears that the pipe comprising the pillar was cut at an angle before the top plate was welded into position. This creates mounting problems.
The blades appear to be made of cast aluminum and are airfoil shaped. One of the blades was flattened in the middle as if a large weight had stamped it. Each blade has two rivets that are used to hold it in place on the horizontal flanges. Unfortunately, the rivets are not uniformly placed. Some are higher or lower than others. This means that when the device is assembled the flanges cannot be perfectly horizontal. The blades are strong and should last a long time.
The weakness of the entire system are the horizontal flanges that connect the blades to the generator axis. They appear to be of very thin stamped aluminum. When you pick them up by the center the outer edges droop. They should have been made thicker.

Dear GudCraft
This vertical wind turbine was shipped with no instructions for Assembly if a person was not mechanically inclined they would be lost! I put it together. I would like you to send me a schematic diagram of the generator and the regulator circuit so that I can understand this item- like how do you stop it if the winds are excessive so it does not destroy itself horizontal turbines come with that feature. Also the quality of this item is not worth $189.00 I feel like I really got ripped off, and I would not order anything else from your company period.
Thank you

It comes unassembled, and no instructions. See that DVD on "what's in the box"? It's not in the box. I went to the Gudcraft website, and the tech forum guy e-mailed me a PDF on how to put it together. OK, so I put it together, now what? There are 2 PC boards hanging by wires, what are they? How do you hook it up to a battery? Hello! I called them in Washington, and although the woman who answered the phone tried to be helpful, I was on hold for so long, I eventually got disconnected. But she did tell me there was no DVD, they sent a paper manual. Yes, but the paper manual that I was emailed only tells you how to put the blades on.... I'm still hopeful that I will get this on my travel trailer, and add wind power to my solar, and I'm hoping, it will indeed charge a car battery like I was told by tech support. But this lack of instructions is just plain stupid, and I hope this wind generator performs better than the good folks at GudCraft.

I have to agree with others as there is no manual so I looked at the picture on amazon to see which way the blades went on. After putting it together I found out the generator is an alternator, the blade direction doesn't matter. It appears the turbine is a 3 phase alternator which didn't matter which way I spun the blades to produce electricity. The plug with a circuit board on it has keyed plugs so you can't plug in the board the wrong way but if you must know it is a full wave bridge rectifier for the 3 phase input with a filter capacitor on the output of the diodes and a 7812 voltage regulator to keep the output voltage to 12v dc. The Red and Black wires are the output of the 12 volts and there is a spare plug on the end so you can hook up to it via soldering. You could just cut off the plug for the red/black wires and tie them into your circuit. I turned on a fan in my room to test the turbine with and was able to get 8-9v with the fan on high which was enough to give me .02 amps on my solar charger which boosts the voltage to the 12v battery to trickle charge it. Although the blades go on very tight, I used a small needle nose pliers to pound down the arms. The arms need to be tight to keep the blades from sliding around and getting loose and sloppy. Personally I have no trouble with the turbine and like the small size of it and with my charger it doesn't have to produce 12v to charge my battery. It appears to be very quiet running. So far So good. Time will tell on how long it runs without problems.

This vertical turbine wind generator came with no instructions or paperwork whatsoever - nothing about assembly or the electronics needed to connect it. After calling the manufacturer and then downloading assembly instructions (still nothing on the circuit needs) it never turned even one revolution when set up in a windy location. Unless you live on the shore or in some other VERY windy place, I don't recommend this unit to anyone. I returned it as a defective design.
