Type Module
Recipe 1x Aluminium
Crafted at Backpack

A smaller version of the Wind Turbine, the Wind Vane is a widget, and a power source that can be placed on a Platform, Vehicle, or on the utility slots of an astroneer's Backpack. The wind vane will only produce power while in windy weather. But not during sandstorm.

Production[edit | edit source]

  • A wind vane produce 0.5 units/sec, or 8 secs/bar worth of energy (same as the small solar panel). It means that without any other source of energy (other than the backpack's default regeneration), a single wind vane will fill a backpack main battery in about 12 seconds (it would be 20 seconds without the backpack's regeneration).
  • When placed on Modules, a wind vane will fill one bar of battery in 8 seconds. So for instance, the 8-bar battery of a  Research station will be filled by one wind vane in 64 seconds.
