I haven't used it or even seen it, so this is not a review or recommendation, it's just passing on a recommendation I saw elsewhere. A magnetic charger you plug into a power pack and it can charge any size of NiMH or "lithium" rechargeable battery. Weighs a whole 21g!

I've had a tiny Olight AAA torch on my keyring for years, it's a good piece of kit.   

I recently bought one of their little headtorches & while I've yet to take it camping I prefer it to my Black Diamond as the interface is a lot simpler.  It also uses a magnetic charging arrangement that can be powered from a USB brick.  https://www.olightstore.uk/h1r-cw.html

Not as light as a USB rechargeable cell.
All you need is a short USB-A to micro lead, and you'd likely be carrying one anyway for other things.

There's also these versions: Folomov or Weltool
Don't do NiMh, but do work with your charged cell as a small power bank
