Ventus is a folding wind power station capable as a portable alternative energy source designed for camping or scientific expedition in the wilds. Sergej Kuckir, the Ventus concept designer, is inspired by ‘Savonius’ type of wind turbines, the system concept features a vertical axis wind turbine, turbine mast and batteries that could be folded and packed in a tube just 10cm in diameter, weighing approximately 4kg.
The ideal application area would be somewhere with plenty of wind resources, such as high at the mountains or perhaps shore line or bay area. The Ventus concept is designed to generate up to 400W renewable electric power, which could be stored in on-board batteries for later use.

Just some advice ,spend more on solar panels and batteries and use wind as a backup unless you are going to park your motorhome on top of a hill with no trees around,and forget about taking your microwave oven or any high power appliances and get a small DC fridge.
