The first-order div least squares finite element methods provide inherent a posteriori error estimator by the elementwise evaluation of the functional. In this paper we prove Q-linear convergence of the associated adaptive mesh-refining strategy for a sufficiently fine initial mesh with some sufficiently large bulk parameter for piecewise constant right-hand sides in a Poisson model problem. The proof relies on some modification of known supercloseness results to non-convex polygonal domains plus the flux representation formula. The analysis is carried out for the lowest-order case in two-dimensions for the simplicity of the presentation.
