Deborah Said:

Dynamo kit?

We Answered:

yes.

What is the voltage of the lights? Perhaps 6 volts? The dynamo has to put out enough voltage to charge the batteries, in the 6 volt case, you would need at least 8 volts. Put a power rectifier (1 amp should be enough) between the generator and the battery to prevent the generator from discharging the battery when it is not turning.

The same thing with the solar cell, it needs to put out 8 volts and you should put a diode between the cell and the battery for the same reason. But, as another answer says, getting any energy is going to be difficult, as how do you align the cell with the sun when you are moving.

Marcus Said:

Would you buy a "green kit"? Includes....?

We Answered:

As an individual, no I would not buy it. However I can see something like this being marketed to conferences or green businesses looking to do promotions. They could just buy a few hundred kits at a time.

I would add more information to each kit. Things to educate people on the benefits of living green, how to spot fake green products, different how-to's such as "how to reduce the impact on the planet."

I think including educational material with an kit you put together will have a more resounding impact than just products alone. Perhaps even kits that have specific purposes like reducing your water bill or making recycling easier.
