what kind do you mean? The 14500 AA sized ones? If so, the answer is NO NO NO they are 3.7 volts each and in 4 in series will result blown fuse at the least and Likely a fried circuit board or two.

USE NI-MH 1.2 volt AA rechargables like ENELOOPS or Alkalines like Duarcells for emergency use

Trust me and the rest of the guys here when we say buy a couple packs 8 or 12 or a kit from Costco or walmart with a Charger and you'll be surprised at the runtime and long life from the Sanyo Eneloops.

They work and they are worth it. Do a search for battery options or power outage options on here and see what everyone says about them. Li-Ion are powerful but they require constant watching to keep them safe.

external charge your eneloops like we do here and you will enjoy your scanner for years,
