You can use cheaper AA instead of D cells – Translucent 2*AA-to-D Battery Converter Cases (2-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
You can use cheaper AA batteries instead of D cells. You can but a bunch of AA NiMh batteries instead of buying all different sizes. This adapter takes 2 AA in parallel to double the capacity to act more like a D cell.
Cons:
The hinge seems flimsy and will break after a few uses. The plastic is flimsy and will crack if you drop the item that house these adapters. The price could be cheaper
Other:
I would have also wanted a 2 AA to D adapter that housed them in series to build a few custom flashlights.
Bottomline:
Decent price to use cheaper AA batteries to replace D cell batteries.
