Has anyone tried making a 3xAA extender for an SC52?

This is something I've been thinking about for a while. With 3xNiMH AA in an SC52, you would get the 500 lumen one minute burst that you get with a 14500, and you would get FAR better runtime than you would get with either 1xNiMH or 1x14500. Has anyone tried it? It doesn't seem like it would be terribly hard to do.

3AA will be too long to carry or fit in pocket.
Wouldn't 18650 be more friendly to fit in pocket and run much longer than 3AA?
If main purpose is using NiMH, then 2AA might be better idea.
