Nice project. Just a precision : putting 2 diodes in parallel won't solve the problem, current is not distributed equally between the 2 diode and it will basically be like only one diode.1N4001 are rated for 1A of current, I guess most battery powered appliance are consuming less than 1A but if you really need to, just use higher rated diodes like 1N5059 (2A) or 1N5401 (3A) :)
