I don't know if they make 4.8v mr11 halogens, but you can pick up 6v mr11 in a variety of wattages at home depot, hardware stores, light fixture stores, batteryspace.com, etc.
Generally, I think, people overvoltage by increasing the voltage from the battery source (by adding more batteries--i.e.: 6 instead of 5). batteryspace has pretty good deals on prewired battery packs and chargers.
overvoltaging will make for a brighter light, but it will drain your batteries more quickly
