battery MS76 replacement?

To be on the safe side I'm just checking to see if this is the correct silver oxide 1.5v button camera battery replacement for MS76 used in an old Contax 139 that I thought should be brought back to life.

Duracell MS76 Silver Oxide Battery, 1.5volt seems like it should be OK, what do you reckon?

Thanks in advance - Clive

Thanks Jim - In a way that list says exactly why the question is so confusing, if you get my drift.

Office depot carries a 3 pk of Energizer SO357 for around $4/5. Used them for years. Work fine.

Thanks Don

I live in Philadelphia but was also in Connecticut recently. Dollar Tree is a chain of dollar stores on the East Coast and they sell this battery (Sunbeam label) four for $1. (Other button batteries as well). Honestly, they might not last quite as long but I keep them in my freezer and never have to worry. - David Lyga

Thanks David, problem solved, we've discovered, here in Australia, that an office supplies chain, keeps the batteries.

Thanks again - Clive

Just don't use alkalines.

John Hermanson , Dec 19, 2013; 10:09 p.m.

Batteries like LR44 and A76 are Alkaline cells and are not equal to silver oxide. Specifically, in cameras like Olympus OM-2/2N, alkaline batteries were created after the camera was designed and cause meter error and shutter lock. John
