TESCO 3W CREE LED - Rechargeables dont work ? Can I volt up

edited October 2008 in MTB general
I have the 2 x C size torch. Standard batteries 1.5v each

Have tried rechargeables which are 1.2v each.

Cant get torch to work with the rechargeables ?
Does it need the full 3v to get the LED going ?

If so, could I overvolt it - say 3 x 1.2v rechargeab;es - take it apart, use the LED and rebuild with say a separate battery pack ?
Could I volt it any higher ?

anybody done this got any instructions a duffer could follow ? !!

Lastly if I can find the AA version would that work with rechargeables or am I going to find the same ?
