Re: Replacement for the dreaded Mercury batteries

Thanks that's very helpful.

I had a quick look and I think I'll order a voltage converting adaptor with SR43 cells plus I'll try a 675 for comparison.

I have a few cameras plus a Gossen which all need them.

I see there are a lot of adaptors that offer a mechanical solution but don't do any voltage conversion. I prefer to get the voltage stabilised but I read somewhere that the converter adaptors don't handle much current and so (for example) the QL17 Giii LED won't light on a battery test

Thanks again for your help.
