Focus on useability
Experienced user can set up the turbine in 20 minutes by a single person. It's even faster to pack down. Minimal tools needed!
Made for low winds
Average days has average wind speed. Our design let's us harness energy in average winds. Stay charged day & night!
Revolutionary tether design
Wind Catcher is inspired by kites. By using ultra high strenght UHMWPE lines we have saved 90% of typical material usage for same size turbine. Powerful & lightweight!
Wind Catcher is a revolutionary one-of-a-kind wind turbine. It is lighter, more powerful and easier to use than any other wind power system and weighs just 12kg - 26lbs!
Take it on your next adventure and set it up with ease!
When you need it, simply unpack it, set it up and start generating power
Packs up neatly
Wind Catcher is a modular design - tower sections and blades are 2 meters long. Easy to fold up, pack up and transport!
Easy to carry
Wind Catcher is just 12 kg [26lbs]. Everything included.
Shipping by regular mail
Wind Catcher is built around the use of high performance composite rods manufactured in 2 meter sections, that can be shipped by normal carriers.

Energy is complicated and highly technical; watts, watt-hours, mean windspeeds and local conditions all play a role. You must learn all of it if you want to compare two different products.
Automatic protection features let's the turbine automatically stop or throttle down.
- High-wind protection mode
- Thermal control
- Over-charge protection
- Vibrations detection
Use the build in "app" to control Wind Catcher.

Control when you want power
Keep your electronics and have convenience of electricity, even when you are off-grid. Connect Wind Catcher to a power input port on your portable solar generator or battery system. The portable generator can power or charge your gear! Wind Catcher is compatible with the most portable generators.
Wind Catcher doesn't need a power station to generate power, but we always recommend a power solution. You can plug it into an existing solar MPPT converter, or use the power directly (but make sure you have the correct voltage).
Warm or Cold?
Wind Catcher is made to be used with a battery system - and it's powerful enough to stay charged, even when cooking and keeping your beverages cold over a day in winds of just 4-5 m/s (9-12 mph).
The overhung rotor blades are inspired by looping kites and their power transfered through the lines to the main gear. The gear increases the rotational speed and drives the permanent magnet brussless direct current motor (PM BLDC).
Worlds lightest wind turbine
Having the forces anchored through the structure and into the ground means the structure is lightweight and strong at the same time. No need for foundation, heavy steel towers and metal brackets.
Wind Catcher is perhaps the worlds lightest wind turbine: Power to Mass of 16W per kilogram of turbine.
We've made Wind Catcher to be easy and fast to assemble. It's so simple and easy that you can do it singlehanded.
The large swept area is the secret-sauce for Wind Catcher's superior low wind performance.
We're using screw in-ground anchors. Simply lay out the anchors in suitable ground, test the holding strength, and set up the turbine.
Wind Catcher requires no complicated knots. We're using quick and easy to use belts for adjustments where its needed. It's simple, effective and quick to setup.
