What is the battery type for ME Super?

Hi guys,

Does anybody know what kind of battery used for Pentax ME Super?
And how many do I need inside the camera, is it just 1 or 2 or else?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks in advance,
2x 1.5 Volt silver-oxide (A76, SR44) or alkaline (LR44)

What monochrome said. ^^

Alkaline is okay, silver oxide is much better.

If you want to not replace batteries again for the better part of friggin' eternity, use a single CR1/3N lithium cell instead.

Thanks, monochrome & Sluggo.

I don't use the ME Super often enough because I have K20D
So I'll go with the cheapest route then.

Thanks again,

Generally the Code 357 is commonly found at Walgreen's in Duracell, Energizer and Eveready - as a CODE that replaces SR44/LR44 now.
