How to Convert Old Polaroids (folding land cameras) to take different batteries

It's easy! Anyone can do it. Here's how to convert it to take three 1.5 volt batteries. You need 3 single holders for the batteries, the batteries, wire cutters/strippers & electrical tape. I bought the battery holders & batteries at Radio Shack.

The 3 single holders with batteries will fit nicely into the compartment. When closing the compartment, be sure not to catch any of the wires.

Note: you can cut the wires to be shorter between the batteries.
You can see mine needs to be retaped. I did this about 3 years ago. I taped the batteries into the holders to keep them in and keep a good connection.
