    You're in the right place. Looks like a Molex - type connector. Molex is a manufacturer of that type of connector.
    Do you see any (they'll be very small, on an edge) identification markings raised on the connector? ( A part number that will get us an exact identification.)

    Had a google for you, couldn't see a pattern that matched anywhere though.. closest I found was a molex 5557 which looks similar but not a perfect match.. will try again if you post more info (any details on the gas meter itself?)

    Aye, I recognise that beast.. had one in lancashire in the mid 90's. I think they were fairly common, must be some way of getting the info on it..Tried to zoom in & get some ID off it but no joy. Any ID numbers etc off your own meter that can help identify the type?

    If it's a live gas meter fitted at your property no doubt a call to the relevant gas supplier / national grid / whoever's looking after the infrastructure at the moment, will result in a service call to replace the battery at no charge.

    I'm assuming this is something you've got hold of from a surplus sale etc? I'm always a bit wary of gas appliances, if in doubt seek a 'Gas Safe' guy formerly known as a 'Corgi' (they keep changing the names..)
