The thing is, the size of this battery is 65mm the size of the AAA holder is 55mm. I know the end cap has a spring, but will it take another 10mm?

No way, the spring is compressed as it is with the 55mm fitting.

Who has actually used on of those batteries in it?

Gotcha. .

Only reason I said it could be an alternative was because of lamps like this one

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/5W-300-Lm-CREE-Le ... 3489wt_827

that run on 3 x AAA or 1 x 18650 . . .
