Nope, I plan on just having a plug similar to that as a port to plug in the solar panel.

Depending on how power hungry the alarm clock is (I'll be testing this) will determine what I do. It might be easier to just plug the solar panel in for a charge up every month or so. 4 hrs of charging at 200 mah should get the batteries around a third charged, 8 hrs is 2/3rds charged. This is how my outdoor thermometer station works and I like it. If it is more power hungry than I anticipate, I'll just mount the solar panel on a window and run a wire across the room to the clock so its charging at every opportunity.

In any case, the plug just would make for a nicer setup.
