    My canonet is using a 625PX mercury battery and I was wondering if
    anyone has tried using a zinc air battery instead. If I try it should
    I look for one called 625PX too? Are they hard to find? Does anyone
    have any experience with them?

    thanks in advance

    The Wein zinc-air version is labelled MRB625.
    Haven't had cause to use the one I have yet as I haven't run out of genuine
    PX625s - however I understand that they do work fine albeit with a shorter
    life than the mercury ones.
