Modify a Polaroid packfilm to use standard batteries

  1. PhotoPete
    This is a simple project that will cost less than the $7 Polaroid charges for a replacement battery, and allow you to use “N” cell batteries available in most pharmacies and camera shops. The project will take less than thirty minutes to complete and requires no special tools.

    My instructions use N-cell batteries, rather than AAA, because it is easier to fit 3 of them into the battery chamber for 4.5 volt conversions. 3 volt conversions can use the same directions and a pair of AAA's.

    The instructions are in two files, to get around the file size limits. The first outlines the minimal equipment requirements, the second is step-by step instructions. Fully illustrated.
