      There's not much you can say, but installing this battery in my 1965 Nikkormat certainly did the trick. Now my exposure meter is working perfectly.

        • Vintage Cameras

        Comments about General Brand 625 1.5v Alkaline Battery:

        This is a nice simple replacement for a mercury "button" battery found in some older film cameras. This battery is rated at 1.5 volts which is higher than most of the batteries that it replaces (1.35v). So make sure and check if your camera can handle the extra voltage. Other than that, no problems. Voltage has remained steady for the life of the battery that I purchased.

                Hard to find this battery for my favorite old film camera.
                Sometimes batteries are not good because they are too old.
                These work very well.

                  making a px25 mercury cell replacement

                  Comments about General Brand 625 1.5v Alkaline Battery:

                  Tis the perfect size to make an adaptor for the silver oxide batteries used to replace the px25 mercury cell @1.35 v/cell for my old Elmo c-300 trifilmatic camera. Much more affordable than the $30 each, mr-9 adaptor which is essentially just one of these plus labor to assemble a diode into it.

                  Now I don't have to get a new camera, Ha Ha!!

                      These are no longer easy to find in NYC, but I found it at B&H. For those old school people who still use manual SLRs requiring film!
