From the Manufacturer
The Solar Wind Turbine uses a photovoltaic solar cell to generate electricity from sunlight. This electricity drives a miniature motor that turns the rotor blades. The stronger the sunlight, the faster the blades will turn. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship, all of Inpro Solar's products are made in Germany and make excellent executive gifts. The solar cells used in Inpro Solar’s toys and models generate electricity when the sun shines on them. This electricity is used to drive a small motor that then turns a wheel or rotor blade, making the models move in sunlight. Truly the magic of the universe! They will also work under a halogen spotlight, but not under fluorescent or neon light tubes, energy-saving light bulbs or LEDs. Inpro Solar was founded in 1981 at the beginning of the solar technology revolution. From the outset, we wanted to promote solar energy through toys, gifts and everyday objects in the house, garden and office, and our range has expanded over the years to meet ever-increasing demand. Over the past 20 years we have built up a reputation for expertise, consistency and innovation. Uniquely, the solar cells that we use are encapsulated within a flexible polymer approved for space applications, making them exceptionally reliable. For ages 14 and up, assembly required.
