replacement battery for Minox 35mm : LUSENET : MINOX FAQ : One Thread

Hi all,

Just discovered this forum, i have a question on replacement battery for minox 35mm. My dad has a minox 35mm (not the later model about 10 years old) that uses a "VARTA V27 PX 5.6V mercury battery". As this battery is not that readily available anymore(if not phasing out of production). Does anyone know of any replacement battery? Please help!!!

I just bought a Minox 35 PL and bought a Varta PX27 battery with no problem. Several stores were out of stock but it didn't seem to be a big deal to find one. Apparently it is the same battery that is used in dog collars (to stop them from barking) you may be able to find one in a pet store. It was $14.99 Canadian (I'm in Toronto). Batteries Plus also carries them.
