I take your point Chan about a meter being accurate if it conforms with the factory spec., however I do think that that photographers who are getting unsatisfactory exposers are too quick to blame the light meter or the shutter speeds of their cameras because it doesn't conform to their sunny sixteen guestimate, anything but blame themselves and their exposure technique.

Minolta meter IV takes AA. Measures incident or flash or combined, chord or chordless.
Weston Master IV or V reflective and invercone attachment for incident. No battery at all. Buy a used one and send to Hollywood light Metric and George will rebuild it.
Sekonic Studio Delux, basically incident with reflective attachment. No battery at all.
I just found I duplicated Chris Crawford`s recommendations from page 1 except I added the Weston Masters. Thats OK, he does great work
I currently have an L-328 which I got used from KEH for about $120us. I had previously owned a series of L-28c-2s which I dearly loved. One day I may feel as comfortable with an LCD readout.
The 328 uses a single AA cell.
I thought for sure someone would be drooling over this.

Otherwise, get a nice small Gossen Digisix for a small price 2nd hand. Works very well and will fit on your camera:
