never ran into that problem -- i buy the battery with the proper number at radio shack --675 i think it is -- I did have meter adjusted so it doesn't need mercury batteries. That would be part of a regular service anyway, and ur CL needs one of those every decade or so. The current battery I am using is an alkaline and it is doing just fine.
