Rechargeable led flashlight powered by magnets housed in the obligatory mints container.
PARTS: 150 ft. 30 gauge enamel-coated magnet wire 4 1/8" rare earth magnets 4 rectifier diodes (IN4007 MIC) Resistor (22 ohm) White led Switch Some ...
This part could really be made from anything (i.e. stiff paper), I used the pen because the magnets just fit inside the tube. Cut your tube a little...

I tested this theory, I used Jamicon WG105°C 16V 1000uF capacitor, 4,7k resistor and a red LED. Supplied 12 volts for a moment and it light it only for 10 seconds of useful and 30 seconds of visible light. I suggest try to use a 1F capacitor for this purposes, as the capacitor is only thing that doesn't need charging controller to operate many thousands charging cycles and doesn't get damaged from overcharging, left uncharged or deep discharging.
