Sharing an easy way to replace PX625 battery :)
1

Hi all,

I received a lot of help from this forum when I just got my Pentax film camera few months ago.

My battery ran out of power yesterday and I searched in this forum and found many ways to replace the PX625 battery. I have ordered an adaptor but I decided to try something new while waiting for it.

I would like to share this quick and easy fix with you.

1) cut some small pieces of paper.
2) put them around LR55 with the battery cap.

Make sure the paper is not thicker than the battery and that is all !
I manage to use LR44 (1.5V) battery to replace PX625 in my Pentax with 2 extra stops light meter difference.
