This little device can turn your running water into electricity! It has a durable plastic shell for better protection and also it is a good solution to save electricity to some extent! This generator is able to produce a maximum of 12V from flowing water.
Ever wondered about charging your mobile phones and batteries using water?
Is it even possible?
Well. We would like to present to you the Micro Water Turbine – Hydraulic Generator. This little device can turn your running water into electricity! It has a durable plastic shell for better protection and also it is a good solution to save electricity to some extent! This generator is able to produce a maximum of 12V from flowing water.
This small device works in the same mechanism as a hydropower plant which is normally located in the middle of a river by building a dam. Once you set up this small device with a water flow that has considerable pressure (connect to a faucet, connect at the bottom of a water tank), the pressure of the flowing water helps in rotating a turbine which sits inside the device. This turbine has small blades inside and these blades start rotating when the water hits them. Then this is connected to a motor inside which in turn rotates as well, resulting in generating electricity. Finally, it is connected to a small circuit inside in order to regulate the output voltage.
If you only want 5V output from this generator, please click here to explore a different version of this product.
There are two kinds of lithium batteries in the market, one with the charge management chip and one without the charge management chip. The charge management chip is needed for charging lithium batteries or otherwise will easily explode.
