    Well, not quite.
    But, I recently found a source (that I have no relation to other than
    as a customer) http://www.batterieswholesale.com/nimh.html for small
    quantities of cheap small cells for reterofitting single-cell flashlights
    with LEDs.

    For example, a pack of 10 1/3 AAA cells (150mAh) for $12.95 shipped
    worldwide or 8* 1/3AA.
    (check the dimensions, the 1/4 AAA cells are really 1/3 AAA, and the 1/3AAA
    are really 1/2)

    This eliminates one hastle (having to make a step-up converter) though
    it does mean you have odd-shaped batteries.

    The capacities are of course lower, for 3 1/3AAA cells, 64% of the
    energy and about 50% for AA cells.

    Dorcy,it came with one AAA alkaline cell.
