Answer: 
You should be able to find them at several online retailers. Just look for a "3.7V rechargeable lithium AA battery". I found quite a few options after a quick search.

Black Solar LED Camping Light with Charger is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed Light weight, sleek design, easy to carry, easy to store and a good travel companion. Just like any other flash light, this light is only for emergency purposes. So, do not expect it to run for hours and hours. Unit provides 2 modes of light (White and Red Flashing), view attached pictures. Roughly, it will stay ON (with white light) for about 5 hours. It gives you the capability to charge a USB device i.e. Cell or iPod etc. The light has to stay ON for the USB charging and that’s absolutely not a well-thought design. It charged my smart phone at a rate of 3% per hour. That means you will need 33 hours of charging to have a battery charged from 0 to 100. But then again, this is only for emergency purposes and a few percents can mean a lot. You are charging or consuming; you have no way of knowing how much battery life is left. Most of the solar lights out there have no battery indicator anyway, so I don’t see this as a major problem. In open areas, the light spread is about 30 feet. The unit supports A/C charging but the charger does not come with it, you have to spend more to use A/C charging. Comparing the total cost of this item vs. the capability it offers, this light is not a great buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Emergency Light The Sun Pad is a great light for an emergency situation. I have used it for a few days to: Charge my Cell Phone, Light my way through dark hallways, and for reading. I am an avid camper. This would be great for someone who car camps. The way it's built might make it to fragile for a back pack camper? By no means is it flimsy. It might not survive a back packers fall unless it was wrapped very well. I don't think its waterproof either. The only other thing I could see wrong is the light needs to be on, for it to charge a cell phone? This seems to be a waste of the power it stores. It will give you light for 4-6 hours. This should get you through the night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, but missing a few key features This is a handy task light/lantern that could have been amazing with a few design changes. Even so, it's still a pretty useful addition to any emergency kit, camping trip, or just around the house. Since the power goes out a LOT at my house, I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of this thing in the near future. Since my neighborhood doesn't have any sidewalks, I plan on carrying this with me whenever I go for a walk at night and activating the red flashing feature for safety. It's light enough that I don't think I'll have any problem carring it for extended amounts of time. It shipped charged, and I was able to turn it on and run it for about 6 hours right out of the box. After that, I charged it about 6-7 hours in indirect sunlight the next day, and it lasted about 5 hours the next night. It probably would have lasted a full 6 hours if I had placed it in direct sunlight and kept the solar panel pointed at the sun throughout the day. Pros: •The light is designed well in a compact form-factor. The adjustable handle swivels and locks to angle for use as a carry handle, hanging loop, or kickstand. •The rubberized exterior reminds me of the same material as a protective case for a tablet or phone. I haven't put the light through any rigorous testing, but I'd expect it to hold up fairly well to a little jostling and/or minor water spills (not immersion though!). •The light is BRIGHT! It will really light up a whole room or tent. It's more of an area light though, so it doesn't project very far if you want to see long distances at night. •I was able to find replacement 3.7V rechargable lithium ion batteries fairly easily online with double the capacity of the included rechargable lithium ion batteries. They're AA sized, but don't just use regular AA batteries - the voltage on those is only 1.5V each. •The USB port for charging electronics is an excellent addition to this lantern. The last time tornados went through my area, the power was out at my house for almost 12 days. It would have been nice to be able to maintain a minimum charge on my phone without having to go to a friend's house to plug it in. Cons: •A wall charger is not included with the light. There's a discrepancy between the website description and the packaging. The box doesn't say anything about an charger being included. •There's no charge status indicator to estimate how much battery life is remaining, even though this would have been a fairly simple feature to include. Without an indicator for battery life remaining, I don't know if I need to prioritize how I use the light. For example, if the power was out at my house could I continue to use the light for reading, or should I use the light to make a last bathroom trip before going to bed before the battery runs out? •The cell phone charger feature doesn't work unless the light is turned on. In my opinion, this is the biggest downside to the product. In order to minimize power losses due to the light, I'd recommend using the red LED flashing feature, which draws less power than the full white LED lantern option. Even so, the two 800 mAh batteries don't even add up to the battery capacity of my phone. Add in losses due to inefficiencies and the unwanted waste of the light, and there's no way I could get a full charge on a dead phone out of it. I'd really like to give this lantern 3.5 stars. Adding the battery charge indicator and the option to turn the light off while charging a phone would have gotten it a full 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy light and charger This item really lights up a tent, and provides light adequate enough to read by. We also set this up in our home and it provided good emergency lighting into several rooms. Item appears to be waterproof enough so that a rain storm does not affect the unit. Only two things I wished Coleman would have done for this item: • Does not come with an A/C charger (item has to be purchased elsewhere). Would be nice to have this with it. • You must turn on a light function to enable the USB charging feature. Would be nice to provide power only to the charging of a cell phone, and not expend power to a light you are not using. Even with the two concerns mentioned above, this item would be a great addition to your home emergency or prep-per kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great light This is not a flashlight to see into the distance. It will sure let you walk through a room when the electric goes out. Has carry handle/prop. Better than a candle for room light. Leave it in a window that catches the sun to keep it powered up. Batteries can be replaced with rechargeable ones. It's got a USB port so it can be charged that way also. I don't have the cable to connect my cell, but it's suppose to charge it also. This would be a great gift for the Superstorm Sandy people. It doesn't heat, but when you have light you feel warmer. Don't forget to remove the plastic between the batteries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failed on 1st use/charge! So I bought this hoping that along with a nice LED light it could also charge my iPhone etc. I took it out of the package, set it outside in the sun, came back for it after nightfall & nothing! At least it did initially come on but when I checked the 6+VDC batteries one of them was dead, the other read ~4VDC. Not enough power to even turn on the red LED emergency lights. I've bought other Coleman brand Solar chargers including one that trickle charges my car via the cigarette lighter & it works great so maybe I just got a lemon or a bad battery.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been good, but it was designed to a dollar point not functionality. The handle design is well thought out. It folds close to the device for storage on one side and over an inch away when swung to the other side. This allows you to get your fingers into the handle to carry the light as a lantern. The white LEDs are not seriously bright compared to a modern LED flashlight, but are bright enough for the intended use. It casts a decent area light that is great for task lighting. It would not work as well if you needed to see things at a slight distance. The red LED flashers would be better served if they did not have the diffuser. They have the potential to get washed out by approaching headlights, due to the headlight hitting the diffuser. This is due to using small surface mount LEDs, rather than exposed lens LEDs as you would see in rear bicycle flashers and similar devices. The biggest drawback of this device is the limited battery capacity. If you are looking to charge a modern smartphone with this, you can hope for 30-40% more battery life. The battery capacity in the phone equal to or greater than the capacity in the two 3.7V 800 mAh Li-ion cells of the device. You have loss in power conversion circuitry and the light powered while charging (why, why, why?). The power button toggles between white, red flashing and off. The problem is that it only powers the USB port for charging a cell phone or other USB device with the light on. So if you need to charge a cell phone, but need no light, you are wasting the limited power on light you don't need. I would recommend flashing red in this case, as it uses less power than white. It would be very simple to have 4 power modes, USB port only with the small power LED on, White, Red flashing, Off. I've designed circuits to do just that. This is a complete design fail. As an electrical engineer, I decided to look inside. I pulled the light apart and was amazed by the low quality of soldering on the main board. I've worked with many SMD component boards, but not seen this level of oxidized solder and bodged together components. Despite this, the light functions how it was designed. The one things that struck me as odd at first could actually be a feature. The batteries are user replacable 14500 3.7V AA sized Lithium cells. These limit the capacity of the light. There are currently 900 mAh cells available, as apposed to the 800 mAh cells shipped with the light. If the quality of the components or soldering is an indicator of the quality of the cells used, there may be a decent run-time gain with higher quality batteries. As a cell phone charger, it is really a fail for anything other than emergency power for a quick call. If you want a good method of charging a cell phone away for power, look at the large lithium packs that are designed for this. As a lantern, this works pretty well, other than fairly limited run-time. Because there is no battery capacity meter, you have no idea what the solar charger has done. You also have no idea of the remaining run-time. Charging to capacity in sunlight requires a long time. And if you are not using a volt meter to monitor the charge as I was, you won't ever know when it gets there. It would have required a dollar or two more in parts for a battery monitor IC and a button to display the current capacity of the battery using 4 or 5 more LEDs behind the opaque plastic. If this were added, a larger capacity battery, and a true USB only mode mentioned above, this would be a really useful device. The only way I can recommend this is if you are only needing a lantern and will only use the other features occasionally. Even then, I think a standard rechargeable lantern with more capacity and run-time would be a better option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light for multiple situations This is a light I purchase for Camping, and Emergency use. It is easy to store, easy to charge after use, and was at a reasonable price. The only thing missing is a bag to carry it in to keep it from getting scratched easily.
