ilovexiaoya Wind Generator – self destruct

22 Comments Uncategorized

Well had an interesting experieince with a wind generator I bought from ebay from ilovexiaoya. First thing I noticed was that the shaft was lose in the bearings – which is very bad news, I had to wait for the wind speed to exceed 11ms for it to start turning, when it did turn it accelerated then spun itself out of the direction of the wind :(

Now that the bearing have loosed up it spins in > 8 ms but that is quite a strong breeze and really not acceptable, the miss aligned shaft causes it to vibrate so much I have tied it off, the nose cone has already worked itself lose.

Currently in talks with ilovexiaoya regarding a refund, he wants me to send it back China at a cost of £100 for a refund of £80….. meaning I would be £200 out of pocket after postage costs!

Don’t buy this item!

    I too have a problem with this generator, the seller has been fobbing me off about replacing it, now it’s been 60 days he is ignoring me. I have opened a case with ebay.

    DO NOT BUY THESE!

    The noise this thing produces! Despite the noise it produces no current until 13knots, 1Amp when others are producing 3A. The thing will drive you crazy, use it as an anchor.Made in China alright, cheap won’t last.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Wouldn’t you rather be known as someone who has a, Carole,
    good reputation. Brochures are mostly more attractive but cost almost three times the cost of your
    promotions. Now, what’s the better 370z keychain way to test its effectivity by trying out yourself.
    You could very easily have the ideal corporation online that could
    also offer you cost-effective charges. Article marketing is an unnecessary expense.
