I received my little Gossen battery doodad via UPS yesterday. From what I can tell, there looks to be some components inside it at the bottom of the adaptor inside a little cover. I believe this to be a schotky diode and maybe a resistor to lower the voltage as the original mercury PX625 batteries were 1.35 volts each, and the LR44 silver oxide versions are 1.5 volts each. The little circuit lowers the voltage close to the 2.7volts required. Otherwise, we'd need to get the meter calibrated.... Anyone know for sure?
