Motor for turbine

  1. I'm planning on doing a little experiment that is basically the same as a wind turbine. Instead, the blades will be replaced by little "scoops" that will turn it into a water mill and will go at the end of a gutter so when it rains the scoops turn.
    Would this Motor work as the generator? I am by no means trying to impact my electricity bill, but just generate enough electricity that will do something like charge a phone. I will attach the motor to a 12volt battery and go on from there.
    So my final question is: will this motor work? If not, please try and direct me to one that will work up to $60.
  2. Also, what about this? Motor
