    Default What's the BEST battery for OM-1n meter?

    I'm in the USA, and can no-longer buy the CORRECT (1.3 volt mercury) battery to power the meter in my Olympus OM-1n. What's the BEST replacement battery that I can buy (in the USA) for my OM-1n meter? Also, what brand of battery is "the best"?

    Try those hearing-aid batteries which comes in 1.35 or 1.4 volts.
    Works for me.
    Don't use any 1.5 volt 625 look alikes or alkaline batteries, really throws the meter off.

    I'm using this MR 9 battery adapter and works well.
