    You can if your camera makes contact with the flat faces of the battery. Some cameras make contact with the battery edge, and an O-ring won't complete that circuit. Those include the Leica CL and the Icarex 35S among many others.

    That's the problem with this no-smoking generation...

    In the old days when we needed such a thing, we'd simply crush up some of the ciggarette wrapper foil and custom fit something. It's amazing how many things that thin foil could fix and I can't believe why nobody ever marketed just the foil...

    Thanks Lee L,

    I found this the other day dealing with the mercury batteries (http://rick_oleson.tripod.com/index-111.html). In my Yashica Mat 124G the battery contacts the sides so I can use single strand 12AWG wire stripped of insulation and wrapped around the battery to make up the space and complete the circuit. I got the camera from Mark Hama just yesterday and he adjusted the meter to work correctly with a 1.5V cell. The tlr meter agrees with the meter in my Nikon N80, we'll see what the slides look like... I'm sure I'll end up with a hand held meter in the future.
