The A640PX they recommend to replace the BA-1312/U is fine as I used a V640ALK. They recommend a A32PX to replace the BA-1318/U. I found that a TR164A is interchangeable with A32PX so that is what I bought. The problem is that It's far too big to fit a Jordan electronics style meter. I found that a 2CR-1/3N is a good replacement for the BA-1318/U. After looking around an A28PX looks like will also work.


Cliffs - get a A640PX and a 2CR-1/3N or possibly an A28PX.
Just got mine and figured out the same thing.

The Duracell PX28L is supposedly another alternative for the 2CR-1/3N, its a camera battery so going to head over and see if I can find one locally.

Edit: Got the battery and it works!

Used aluminum foil to fill in the extra space for both batteries. That plus the shape of the battery cover holds them in well.
