hmmm ok... didn't realize this simple post would generate any heat
I really just meant it as a reference for future RFFers facing the same problem I faced now: local retailers uninterested in maintaining a (small) supply of unusual or non-standard batteries.
I'm sorry it seems not all the batteries listed on the site are available - I only searched for the PX625-replacements - and those were in stock and much
cheaper than I was accustomed to paying locally.
What's more, after I ordered I received a very polite email listing all the details of the transaction and when the batteries had been despatched, with a confirmation of the address etc. All in all I was really pleased.
And because the Wein cells were just £5 each and last about a year (and furthermore last around ten years if the air-seal isn't broken), then £18 for three batteries incl delivery seem a bargain to me. Three+ years of OM metering are worth more than that to me.
