To hardwire this torch, remove the rechargable battery and attack a 1.2V to 1.5V DC power supply in its place. The photocell will still cause it to turn on and off, but of course won't do anything more than that.

I would recommend covering the entire solar area (some have and some do not have) a light sensor and rely on the panel to determine light level. Cover the entire top with something opaque to ensure it turns on and doesn't try to charge your power supply.
