    Mike, Google, google, google.

    You'll find that a commonly available 675 zinc air hearing aid battery, with a #9 o-ring (or short length of wire) as a spacer, works well. I've also read that a #41 o-ring works.

    Dimensions:

    #9 O-Ring (outer - 5/8", inner - 7/16", thickness - 3/32")

    #41 O-Ring (outer - 9/16", inner - 7/16", thickness - 1/16")

    There's also the Wein cell, another zinc-air battery specifically designed as a drop-ion replacement for the long-gone 625. Camera stores may carry it.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
