alright so i had a flashlight that was charged manually i had an idea of making an clock out of it.

Step 1: stuff you need

so here is what you will need:
a manually charged flashlight
soldering iron
switch (preferably but not required)
electric wire
general purpose tools 
clock mechanism

instead of batteries why not connect it to one of the generators for powering a bicycle headlamp
i would but my bike doesn't have any only some refelectors
this vid might help, has built in usb <br /> <br /> <br />http://www.mobile.meta-concept.net/?p=273
I'll try that but until I get all the supplies this has turned into a power source for my clock
