I think Joule Thief is the generic term. Several of my friends were 
quite annoyed that an "expired" AA lit the LED on a Joule Thief for as 
long as we cared to watch it (many many hours). They could not fathom 
why a perfectly good battery (it lit the LED didn't it!?) had to be 
removed from it's intended application (TV remote) and thrown away.

I'm not sure what kind of supply they use, but they work with most "dead" batteries. A serious advantage is that they work with devices (such as remote controls) where external power jacks are not available.
