'FAST,FREE & EASY' MODIFICATION , ALLOWS CONTINUAL USE OF ALL MINOX 35mm CAMERAS NOW THAT THE PX27 BATTERY IS OBSOLETE .
Please note that an EXP27 battery is available for the Minox C & LX cameras . This can also be used in the older 5.6v 35mm cameras
Now that the mercury PX27 battery is not available , it is possible to modify Minox EL , GL , GT , PE and PL cameras to take four SR44 (1.5v ) batteries or two DL 1/3n Lithium (3v ) batteries. Firstly line the inside of the Minox Battery chamber with insulating tape 18mm x 42mm or something similar ( thin card or plastic will also work ) then fit four SR44 or SG13 batteries with the positive (+) case of the battteries facing outward. Alternatively , two Lithium 3v batteries can also be used. The extra 0.4 volts is regulated by a zener diode inside the camera and will not affect the operation.
