Default 3.0 to 3.6 V battery packs?

All the digital camera battery packs reviewed are designed for 5-7 V cameras. My Epson PhotoPC 800 uses only 2 AA batteries (for 2.4-3.0 V). The external power supply is rated for 3.5 V. Therefore, I need a battery pack that will generate >2.4 A and 3.0-3.6 V. Do any such devices exist?

Thanks for the info. My searches never found that model, because Digicom does not mention Epson cameras (only Fuji and Olympus).

The item is currently out of stock at TigerDirect. It's also available at etronics.com, but they charge $10 more.

I bought the Digicom Auxiliary Power Pack for 3 Volt cameras. It came with 2 cables, each having 2 different connectors. Unfortunately, none of the four would work with my Epson PhotoPC 800. Only one plug fit, but the external contact was not tight enough to sustain a connection. I tried using fine metal sandpaper to reduce the diameter of the next larger plug. That didn't work.

I then went to Thomas Distributing and bought a DP-1 cable that specifically states compatibility with my Epson camera. Wrong. It is too big. I returned that product.

My Epson is still stuck with 2 AA NiMH batteries. The Power Pack is being used with my daughter's Walkman.
