Anyone out there build a Windcell Maker Kit? (seeedstudio.com/depot/windce … ?cPath=155) I am in the process of designing an automated Mailbox with sensors and movement. Disposable batteries would need to be replaced and maintained, so a rechargeable option would be desirable. Solar or a traditional wind turbine were options, but I like the innovation behind the Windcell technology. How much power could I expect from such a unit? Are there any special considerations in converting the power into a clean DC current for powering batteries or electronics?

I’ve been through the FAQ on Humdinger Wind’s site, as well as the instructions and wiki pages on Seed Studio, and found them both lacking in detailed information on the generator.
I am tempted to purchase the device, build it, and update the wiki some basic information. Basic information like what kinds of voltages/current can be expected at certain wind levels, basic circuits for usage, etc.
Maybe you can write an email to the designer
