Default Kiev 88 TTL Battery?

Just got a Kiev 88 TTL off eBay. All is working well, but I can't figure
out what batteries to use. The Englich language manual I have indicates 3
each of type PX675 or RM 675 or MS 76. I tried stacking 3 MS 76's, but the
battery compartment was too large.

Elsewhere on the internet I found reference to 3 G13/A76/LR44. Haven't
tried those yet. Anyone have any experience or ideas?

Thanks much in advance.

Tom

Here' a good article I found by searching the web for "PX675":

Thanks for the reference. I've also found that 6v medical or photo
batteries (the little, fat barrel shaped ones) fit and operate the meter --
I haven't, though, figured out what the higher voltage does to the exposure
reading.

Thanks again.
