Check the 1D Flashlight Kit by Maratac. The flashlight comes with a 4xAA to D-cell converter (battery holder). Using four Eneloop cells youíd get 8800 mAh.


One of my D-cell rechargeable batteries is rated at 10,000 mAh, so the four AAís arenít quite a match, but have you ever recharged an 10,000 mAh D-cell? You can recharge four AA Eneloops much faster than a single D-cell ó four charging ports versus one... if your battery charger can even accommodate D-cell batteries and has the ability to pack 10,000 mAh through one charging port.

Bottom line is that if you want to use D-cell lights and prefer rechargeable batteries, get the adapters. I didnít do the math ahead of time and bought the D-cell rechargeable batteries which it turned out I couldnít fully charge because the only charger I had that could accommodate D-cell batteries didnít have the electronics to reach 10,000 mAh capacity. So I bought an EBL charger that was specíd for it... Iíd have been way better off with the adapters and more AA Eneloops.

Unfortunately, the 4xAA battery holder is not marketed separately, so the 3xAA converters available on Amazon and at Battery Junction seem to be the best option.
