This should be in the wiki. I just built me a charger using an old LED 
flashlight with a crank that can output between 2 and around 10 watts, 
depending on how ridiculous one looks when operating it (you just have to 
laugh at people cranking away at 10W).

While i've searched for power requirements on the wiki, all I've come across 
are the power requirements of charging the battery. While it's possible I 
haven't searched extensively enough, XO's power requirements deserve a bit 
more press, i think.
