Windpax can be used anywhere to power electronics, lighting, etc. Remote cabins, campsites, and work sites can run lighting or run and charge electronic devices. They are perfect for providing a reliable power supply for any type of outdoor recreation.
Natural disasters can destroy and disable the power grid on which many rely. This can present many safety issues and can lead to a lack of communication and rescue. The proposed use for “WindPax” are to be able to drop collapsible wind turbines in to areas in need and provide enough electricity for communication and other commodities.
The increasing reliance on electronics and battery storage has made the ability to charge devices critical to maintaining the effectiveness in the field. Currently extra battery storage is used to provide this power but can pose problems during long missions and unintended scenarios. Therefore, a portable energy producing/storage device is needed.
