Mouse wheel battery charger?

Is it possible to make a (trickle?) charger for a 12V battery that runs off a mouse wheel (or several)? The battery is intended to be used to power a 70-100W TV through an inverter... Where can small (mouse/rat-powered) generators be found (or how to make them)? Could small electric motors be used? Is this even possible?

it is just like a water wheel, exept the energy is coming from a mouse instead of running water
Don't use a mouse.  To the doubters: have you ever seen a gerbil with cabin fever on a wheel.  They will keep you awake all night.  The biggest problem will probably be their incessant gnawing behavior on any exposed parts.

In simple terms no.
Are you serious ? How much power can you practically extract from a mouse ?
