    Just received a Honeywell Spotmatic (early B-Day gift).It's in great shape and has a nice super-takumar 1.8 55mm bolted on the front.
    The battery compartment held a 400 (mercury) that measured 0.13 mm high.My alternative power source all measure 0.2mm and won't fit.Suggestions please.

    A 400 silver if you can find it. Or I think the 386 . I think that's right. Either way both are the same size and voltage.

    Voltage doesn't matter on the Spotmatic (within reason), so any battery that will fit should do the job.
