Windturbin 12v motor

I am trying to make a windturbin to use as a charging station. It will only be small so I can take it with me. I will use 12v dc motor, 1000uf 25v capacitor, 7805 IC, 1N4007 diode, female usb, and a solderless breadboard. Can you assist with what type of motor would be the best while also being quite small. Thank you

Hi Sarah,

Iā€™m not sure how large your wind turbine is, or how fast it spins, but something like these 50RPM Gearmotors would probably do the trick:

You could probably get away with something like a wiper motor from a car too.
