Something like this?

Not for use in UAE but need to buy it here. I've checked Ace and can't think of anywhere else.

Thanks!

Still trying to think what you'd want 24A at 12V AC for... I guess you could rectify it to DC and charge some batteries?

Thanks Scamp!
Millhouse, it's for a birthday present for a weather geek.
Something to tinker with and put together and maybe power a radio or something. Although not too sure how these things work - is that feasible?

Since it is outputting AC , I presume the product in the OP's link comes with an Inverter ?

what can you do with some 288 - 300 watts ?

I'd go for something not less than 1000watts, for me it would be 3KW

Dual small turbine + solar panel may give that extra power
