Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant Reviews
About Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant
The Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant, available at Blue-Freedom.net, is described as the world’s smallest hydropower plant, designed to give people the ability to create energy anywhere in the world.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant is a personal power plant that takes up the minimum amount of space, being just twenty centimeters in diameter and weighing only 400 grams, equivalent to just under 8 inches and just under a single pound, making it easy to take it anywhere in the world.
The blue rotor blades are optimized for flowing water, a high quality frame protects their hydrodynamic turbine, and the energy it produces stores in their high performance battery, giving you access to ecologically responsible energy whenever you need to charge any of your mobile devices.
Using their USB charging function, you recharge “digital cameras, MP3 players, navigation devices, LED lamps, razors, camping fridges, mobile phones, smartphones, tablets, notebooks – and any product that comes with a rechargeable battery.”
With the ability to generate power even when only shallow water is available, the Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant hopes to make it possible for anyone to generate energy independently, while preserving nature’s biodiversity.
This product is not yet actually available on the open market, but it can be pre-ordered from their website for $319, and should be ready for delivery in December of 2015. At one point, the Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant was available at a discounted price through a Kickstarter campaign, but since the campaign has already been funded, it appears to no longer be available through that avenue – only through their own website.
This website does not provide any information on requesting and receiving refunds, likely because they are still operating within the pre-order system. Unfortunately, there is not much information available on cancelling your order, but if something has occurred to make you want to cancel your order, you should contact Customer Service as soon as possible.

Unfortunately there are not many customer or user reviews available for this product because it is still in pre-production at this time.
There are third party independent reviews from various online publications, however, and they seem to all share the same enthusiasm for the potential of this product and the promises the company is making about the power that can be generated by the Blue Freedom Hydropower Plant.
It appears that they are right when they claim to be the smallest available working hydropower device, and they claim that one hour in a stream will generate enough electricity to power your phone for 10 hours.
Unfortunately, these claims have not been verified by any independent sources, so until this product is available on the market and people and companies can try this product out for themselves, it’s just a product with promise.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are other companies which sell portable hydropower generating devices for travelers, campers, and people who have other reason for being away from traditional power sources. These devices are generally not as lightweight as what Blue-Freedom.net advertises their product to be, but many of them are more affordable, so it just depends on what a consumer is hoping to get from their product.
