I'm currently assembling a 12vDC shack (i.e. no mains to be seen). I have a good bank of 12v batteries and everything from lighting to rigs and PC's running off them. However I'm currently having to lug the batteries to mains to recharge them at regular intervals.
Theres plenty of wind where I am so I'd like to try my hand at building a wind generator to trickle charge the batteries. Has anyone tried one of these? I've scoured the web but only found commercial stuff so far.
I don't need a large capacity generator as the shack is not heavily used. A break of about 48 hours between operating stints is common giving ample opportunity for the batteries to charge up. I would like the generator to be relatively discrete also...
). The smallest commercial model seen on the web has a blade diameter of 1.3m...
