Listing #: 504066539
Most owners of classic film cameras/meters are using RUBBISH Alkaline button cells...normally known as LR44 / A76

RUBBISH ? : because their voltage drops in use,causing unreliable meter readings,and inaccurate speeds in electric powered shutters. Output starts at 1.55v,rapidly falls to 1.45v,and down to 0.9v.

Silver-Oxide batteries KEEP their VOLTAGE over the life of the battery(+5 years in storage),and are the only battery type recommended for use in the following cameras :

Chinon,Cosina,Fujica,Leica R3,R4, Mamiya 35, MINOLTA
Nikon F2,F3,EM,Nikkormat FT2,FT3,FE,FE2,FG, FG 20,FM,FM-2
