Sick of your phone running out of battery? Now you can use a mini water turbine to charge it up. With the invention already a success in India, the German engineer behind it now has his sights set on the African market.

Environmentalist attacked gold dredgers in the U.S. for endangering fish to exposed impellers even though gold dredges don't utilize exposed impellers.. I wonder when they would attack this design?

Imagine a hundred of those things in a river or stream...the fish or wild life would get trapped and die. Or no??

Same concept +wind powered turbine (or manual operation)= better chances to uses it. Once you make billions remember me.

Correct me if I’m wrong but, isn’t it just a motor shaft connected to a wire connected to a propeller? Of course their is the battery and circuit board but those don’t cost much at all to make. That thing is worth probably $120-$180 at most

😫 God Damn do you people in the comments understand how development occurs? Do you actually think solar and wind when first developed they cost the same they do now? Solar by itself is never going to be the answer it will require the combination of solar, wind, and hydro amongst other green tech to break our dependency on fossil fuels and atomic.

Get it down to $20-50 and you have yourself a deal! But like all new things like this, it will be a bit before we see anything like that. I've forgotten at least a dozen neat inventions that were super promising and made it to this stage, and haven't heard anything about them in years. But if you're gonna be charging $300+ per unit, you can get a 100w solar unit for that price

All things in nature are layered. So why wouldn't a layered approach work for our energy needs? Different environments require different solutions. Price always goes down in time and with competition. Western nations have an insatiable appetite for energy and will stop at nothing to aquire it, so I imagine it would be difficult for these folks to understand the simple energy needs of these villagers.

I kinda feel we will get deadly problems soon taking the energy from our ecosystem. It should be taken from the sun firstly. There might be any association between earths magnetic field and the ocean moving.

A copy of my generator designed to generate power for a small cottage/ Lodge on the side of a valley in an outline planning application in Malvern District Council from a small river near Leigh Sinton back in 1999/2000 . It's on record . The application was made on behalf of Tom Norbury who at the time owned some 9 acres of the valley side. Anyone who would like to manufacture these generators in the UK please contact me .

Funny thing about these inventions, is that you can listen these guys for hours as they speak how unique and innovative it is, but then you open AliExpress or similar store, and see thousands of similar items from different manufacturers.
