Great shots! I've got an Electro 35 GT that I have yet to use. I haven't come up with a replacement battery setup for it yet. So, I'm curious -- what are you using for a battery or batteries?

Hi Michael,

Ah use, http://www.yashica-guy.com/index.html

Yashica guy's adaptors along with this one from the web (can't find the address)...



476A battery in the UK - think it's A544 in US. The one pictured is about half the price of Yashica guy's but Y-guy's site is a great source for all things Yashica.

Cheers, Boab Cool

You don't need an adapter. Just stack a CR123A battery with 2 LR44 batteries and you'll get your 6 volts and the stack will fit without an adapter. To make it easier to handle wrap a bit of tape around the edges of the 2 LR44s.

It's not a good idea tae mix chemistries in batteries. Ye can get overheating and leakage, which'll lead tae inaccurate metering etc. Use only lithium, or only alkaline together. A single 6v lasts longer, is more consistent and more convenient. Ye can use bubble wrap and a coil if ye don't want tae outlay $4/5 for an adaptor. They're easy enough tae make, if yer inclined.
