Default Portable water turbine for power.

Seems like a great idea for a someone with a bug out location and a stream. You could add a net for fishing ?

Looks like an interesting product, but for $7k to produce 100-500W, I think there are other cheaper solutions. There are some good plans for home built setups - depends on individual situation.

The units i have seen out in the woods have the water diverted into 1" or larger PVC then pushed through a small turbine to charge batt bank. out in to open water like that would be venerable to rocks/logs/other debris moving down stream. One guy built a small wooden flume with a water wheel running a GM high output alternator to keep his batteries charged, he said he had been doing it that way for over 20 years.
