battery type : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread

Can all you great folk help me with recommending a battery type for my R3. Alkaline?, silver oxide, or lythium. I believe it takes two 1.5 volt 76 type baterries. But which one lasts better, provide the most constant voltage - i.e: metering. thank you

Silver oxide: cheaper than lithium. Lithium: long shelf-life, better performance in cold temperatures, but more expensive. Alkalines: forget them, they do not maintain constant voltage.
