1. A multi-functional charger with power generating and illumination functions comprising a device body, a gear set, a generator, a voltage and current control loop, a battery, and a movable rod;

  • whereinthe device body is formed by an upper casing and a lower casing;

    an inner edge of the device body is formed with a plurality of receiving spaces for receiving the gear set, the generator, the voltage and current control loop and the battery;

    the gear set includes a first gear, a second gear, a third gear, and a fourth gear;

    two pivotal rods pass through the gears to be pivoted to one receiving space of the device body;

    each first pivot pivotal rod passes through the two different gears;

    the four gears are alternatively arranged so as to form a driving system;

    one outer lateral side of the gear set is pivoted to the movable rod;

    the generator is installed in the device body and one side of the gear set opposite to the side of the gear set which is installed with the movable rod;

    another end of the generator has a driving shaft;

    a driving gear is engaged to the driving shaft;

    the driving gear is engaged to one end of the gear set;

    thereby, the generator is driven to generate power by the gear set; and

    the voltage and current control loop is an IC integrated circuit board which convert AC current from the generator to DC current;

    one end of the voltage and current control loop is connected to a battery for storing power from the generator and another end of the voltage and current control loop is connected to an output portion for outputting the power to an electrical device, or is connected to an LED for illumination, wherein the voltage and current control loop is capable of charging the electrical device or the LED even if the battery is not charged.
