No. Voltage doesn't kill you, amperage does, and the amperage produced by a AA battery is not even enough to cause a tingle. Amperage AND voltage kills. Should also include frequency in that equation. 120 v/ 10 amps of 400 hertz kills faster than 60 hz. Amps with low voltage will do no harm. You need both to kill. One AA battery would not kill you but put together enough of them? Why not?
