The new Cegasa EN6 1.5 volt battery is doing a fine job of powering my 87 year old BUllE electromagnetic clock.
I had to do a restoration on my clock, and the Cegasa EN6 battery should power the clock for 6 or more years!
I use these to power a Seth Thomas clock. The clock is weight-driven and square-cased and was used in railroad depots. It is electromagnetically wound and uses two of these to energize a very large electromagnet to lift the weight. This battery's plastic case is much better than the '60s-era Eveready paper-covered version.
So in November of 2013 I wrote a review of this battery. I had to purchase two of them for an old Seth Thomas self winding clock that had belonged to my grandfather. Well guess what? The batteries just died this week. So that's 4 years and 6 months of life from these! Not sure what the price was then but even at todays price that's a little less that $15 a year for two batteries for 4 years and 6 months! Seriously, where can you find such a value as this nowadays?
Works just fine in my old hand-crank magneto telephones. I'm ordering two more because I just got another old telephone.
I've had this square-cased Seth Thomas clock for decades. It was part of my Dad's collection. It required two (2) Eveready "Ignitor" 1.5V dry cells to keep it going. Those went out of production long ago and I have been unable to find a suitable replacement until now. These EN6 batteries have the Seth Thomas running and "KERCHUNKing" again. A bit pricey, but if they last the 18 months I used t
I have an old 1922 Self-winding clock that my father had hanging in the Western Union in Santa Barbara, CA. It is a beautiful clock and works perfect. It requires batteries to run and these are a perfect fit and quality for this clock. It winds itself each hour and the batteries have never let us down.
Thank you for your great Customer Service.
