Espio 738

I have a perfectly good and functional Espio 738 which I really liked a lot but the battery died a few years back (which makes nonsense of functional right now) and I have NO idea where to get another. Anyone got any ideas?

Looks like a somewhat standard CR123A battery. If you can't find one locally, you should be able to order one fairly easily.

Thanks, I'll start hunting about. I'd probably use it if I could, I have a few unused rolls of film and should do something with them before they deteriorate.

A local computer store I go to fairly often has a 2-pack for $5, so hopefully you can find some that wont break the bank on your side of the world

Sadly that is not the battery. a bit more hunting shows that its a squarish one, whereas the battery for the 738 is rounded, and short (by comparison, say, with a AA). I'll keep looking.

The CR123A is round, like a short AA battery.

Thats interesting. I'll look out for that one then. When i googled, got some hong kong sellers who had a battery ID'd as CR123A and it looked like a 9volt but with a single top bit (i have no idea what its called).

The duracell one should be at my local supermarket, they have a huge range of batteries. If not there, Dick Smith will provide.
