    I saw a guy on Ebay selling a special thing for the 500el/M

    Instead to the two rechargable hasselblad batteries he has a special small container which takes a 9V battery and which apparently works better than the original two rechargables.

    Has anyone had any experiance with these?

    Thanks

    35mm film can with the bottom cut off, two small pieces of copper with a 9V battery connector work fine for me.

    Thanks

    I put it in about a year ago, probably shot 100 rolls, still works fine.
