[Rollei] Re: Battery Problems

This has been asked many many times.

1) Use the MR-9 battery adapter and an S76 Silver oxide cell. See 
<http://www.criscam.com/> for details on the MR-9.
2) Buy PX625 mercury cells from overseas or through those who import 
them. Search with Deja News and you'll find a half dozen suppliers.
3) Use the Wein cells, they work well.
4) Have the meter recalibrated for PX625A alkaline cells.

1) Use the Minox 8x11 battery kit, which is a sleeve holder and 4 
S386 Silver oxide cells.
2) Buy PX-27 mercury cells from overseas or through suppliers...

I use options #1 and #2 in both cases.
