inspired by the zenit apk,which has a external power imput, (it rinses batterys). i thought id apply it to my shiney new kiev, however i dont want to do anything nasty to it because its loveley,apart from its battery requirements.
what i used
spair battery compartment cover
a screw
2 rubber washers
some heatshrink
a spring
soldering iron
hot glue gun
battery holder and clip
flash sync plug and socket
side cutters
file,and rotary tool

iv done aa conversions to numerous other cameras in a much less sympathetic manner.
im no fan of the modern button cell battery,  because they last a year if your lucky weather you use them or not, especially when compaired to the old poisonous mercury ones which would last for 5 years or more,(actually have an olympus camera with 5 in it and its still going,_)

Step 1: remove battery cover
