Adaptation on a Polaroid 250:

Original mounting for a battery of 4.5 V. The holder can be bought for few dollars in an electronics store or model maker.

Image

Unscrew the battery holder of origin (the small screw in the middle)

Image

Image

Cut all edges of the holder so that it fits correctly into the trap of the camera.

Image

Image


And after cutting the grooves inside the box, just to make space (I know I know, you can say: Barbarian :mrgreen:)

Image

Image

Then in the holder, it takes 3 x 1.5 v for v. 4.5 However, do not forget to put a little wire to close the electrical circuit to the fourth battery.

Image

Finally we must weld the holder to the camera and now it works ( I was wrong, I cut a little too holder, I know it's bad, but it works ;) )

Nice, I'll have to do this kind of transformation on my future 250.

Are the batteries LR06 (AA) or LR03 (AAA) ?

Thank's.

I wanted to add that if you don't want to alterate your camera at all, you can connect a battery clip to the holder and connect it the the camera clips.

@ Lemim: you might want to add the model 355, which needs a 4.5v battery.

No worries. Gladly I could help. Is there any change, the camera pages are to include this information?
For example <a href="http://en.polaroid-passion.com/polaroid-type-100-cameras.php?id=109">this one</a>?

And do you know if the poppers to connect to the battery are also available some where?
I hate to modify my camera, but i also don't want to pay too much for my batteries...
