Thanks Attila they look really nice...are they effective/anyone used them??
I assume they would work for the Yashica MG-1 as well.

Yes, okay. If it has same battery I just guess it.

A much cheaper alternative is go to the hardware store, (take an LR44
battery with you) and whatever flexible plastic hose fits around the battery,
buy a foot of it and some springs (plumbing section). I have
valve springs in my shop for trumpets that will work just dandy. No,
it's not machined aluminum or will last a lifetime (you can will the ebay
adapter to your grandchildren) but who cares. Laughing

Used the same trick with the hose and washers for spacers- springs would be a good idea too though-nice one Very Happy

I wound black electrical tape around the battery until I got snug fit, then I used a piece of stranded 16 gage electrical wire (insulation removed) mushed up like a spiral.

Has worked for a year now.

Those listings are long gone. In fact, I don't think those adapters are being made any more.
