I seem to recall reading a review of them. It seems that the purchase found them extremely handy. I think if you tour it would be helpful, or if your commute begins or ends in the dark. Otherwise, I don't see the need for most riders.

Get one, let us know.

Neat geeky idea to use a wind turbine. Although I removed the plastic they put on my BMW helmet around the rear vents, because it caused more noise than it was probably designed to stop. Somebody needs to test drive this for noise on a helmet.

If you want something similar quick and cheap, just get a loop sewn on the back of your riding jacket and drop in a cycle rear led light. Mine stays on the jacket all the time. It's extremely visible which isn't always a good thing, so I tend to just put it on in fog and mist or if riding buddies are following.
