The Leading Edge LE-v150 is a rugged, silent and highly reliable vertical axis wind turbine designed to provide power outputs of up to 200 watts for a host of different battery charging applications.

For use in applications where a traditional horizontal axis turbine may be inappropriate and simply couldn’t survive prolonged periods of storm force winds, the LE-v150 draws on our heritage of designing rugged vertical axis wind turbine chargers for powering industrial and research equipment in harsh environments.  

The LE-v150 is available as a 12V, 24V and 48V DC wind turbine.

It can be found all over the world powering small electronic systems in remote places where there is no other power source, and is a great companion to solar PV  in ‘off-grid’ renewable energy systems powering communications equipment, meteorology or telemetry instrumentation.

However, the LE-v150 also lends itself perfectly for leisure activities in the Marine sector. The LE-v150 wind turbine provides a strong marine battery charger and is perfect for providing charge into valuable batteries whilst owners are away. 

Build quality & durability

The LE-v150 wind turbine is manufactured from high quality aluminium alloys and stainless steel which has been laser processed, CNC machined, hard anodized and powder coated to ensure that the wind turbine will withstand harsh environments that it was originally designed for. The LE-v150 is precision engineered in the UK. With only 1 moving part, there is little to go wrong and no brushes or slip-rings to wear out and need replacing. The sealed bearings are fully lubricated, so no greasing or maintenance is required. All of the fixings are manufactured from A4 stainless steel which are able to withstand the most corrosive of environments.
