How would it feel like putting a small windmill on top of a car, so it will produce 5 volts of electricity? Answered

Just wondering, can putting a small windmill on top of the car to produce some electricity and charge a battery pack, and the battery pack can be brought everywhere so whenever we need to charge our cell/iPod, we can just hook it up?? Will it be efficient??

Sounds like you want a perpetual motion machine ….

If you park the car or RV, then all the discussion about increased drag goes away.

Now I want to put one on my car.  Just because.

It would work, however it wouldn't be efficient and making the little windmill stand up to 70mph wind could be more effort than thought, as said the easiest source of power in a car is the lighter socket or if it's a permanent install you could add a new circuit to the inverter that gives you mains power in the car...

While I agree with the previous answers, I'll go a bit further in pointing you to this as an example of something better than the wind generator:

Your car already has a very efficient generator and a very hand way interface with it via the plugs in your dash.

The  increased drag from a windmill on your car with lower your car's fuel efficiency. What's wrong with the 12V plug that every car has in a cigarette lighter? You can get the 12V chargers for almost any gadget.....
