Diodes for Bridge Rectifier?

 Please Help!
I need to make a bridge rectifier for a shake charging flashlight which also include using a 5V regulator - so it won't be a very high voltage, if that matters.  What type of diodes do I need for this bridge rectifier?  HELP!  thank you!

Try 1N4001  or even 1N4148. Anything will do here though.

How many volts are you getting  out of your coil though ?
