What batteries for Minolta Flash Meter III? So much contradictory info online.

Recommended Posts

I was given an old Minolta Flash Meter III. It is without batteries and after researching, I have found that I am beyond confused. Every search I do gives me contradictory information.

 

Could someone familiar with this light meter point me to exactly what I need to power this thing?

 

So far I read that this works...

But that this works...

Which doesn't help me bcause it's overseas so I'd need to find the same here.

 

Some say lithium is ok. Some say no way, it'll ruin the meter, stick with silver.

 

I'm pulling my hair out. Sorry if I seem confused. I would love to go down to the nearest drug store or Wal-Mart or supermarket and just buy the battery I need.
