April 20, 2014 by Jeff Shepard

Skajaquoda Group Inc. has announced its Trinity portable wind turbine that charges any USB device. Trinity folds together into a 12" cylinder. Trinity has a 15W generator and a built in battery that holds 15,000 mAh. It's designed for simplicity of operation. To open the three blades the user simply pulls out the 11" aluminum legs and arrange them in either a tripod configuration or laid flat depending on the need. To close Trinity the legs are pushed back in and the blades close automatically. In a closed position the legs lock the blades and prevent them from opening.

“It gets rough when your phone is out of battery, especially when you are nowhere near electricity. You might be camping with the family or taking a long hike with your friends, you need to stay connected. Our phones can also be important for our security in case of emergency. Trinity is easy to carry with you and works everywhere, and it fits as well in your bag as in your hand. Trinity's unique design allows you to charge your smart phone up to 4-6 times before it has to be recharged either by itself (using the wind) or simply plug it into a wall output so it can be fully charged before you leave your home,” stated Einar Agustsson, CEO of Skajaquoda.

On the bottom Trinity has a USB plug to charge devices and a mini USB plug to charge Trinity in a wall socket. The short battery life of most phones and tablets can be really frustrating. With Trinity users have the freedom to charge USB devices anywhere in the world with sustainable energy.
