Gossen Lunasix 3 battery discontinued ?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread

Dear friends, I hope you will excuse me for posting a question somewhat irrelevant to the general interests of the forum...

Has anyone heard that the battery needed for the (classic) Gossen Lunasix 3 lightmeter shall be discontinued ? The battery type is V625PX 1,35v Mercury. Is there maybe another type that can replace this battery ?

Are there any battery experts out there that can help me ?

Contact Bogen Corp. http://www.bogenphoto.com/ They now make an insert for the battery compartment of your meter which will take easy-to-obtain silver batteries, and converts the voltage so that your meter will perform normally. About $25 USD.
