I collect vintage transistor radios (1950s/1960s) and on occasion, battery powered tube radios. I located an extremely rare miniature tube radio, a PRIVAT-EAR radio made between 1949/1952. It has 2 tiny glass tubes, of the kind that were developed during WWII to be used in Proximity Fused anti-aircraft shells. It does not have a speaker, but an earphone. One unusual feature is that extending the rod antenna turns the radio on. This radio uses one 22.5V B battery and two AA batteries. I didn't expect to find the correct B battery, but online searching led me to the Battery Mart. Much to my delight, they had the battery, an Excell 412. While not inexpensive, the rarity of equipment that use this type of battery justified the cost. The shipping was very FAST, and I immediately tore open the package and installed all the batteries. The chances that the radio would work were very slim because of its age. Slowly the radio crackled to life. I was able to receive one station. I will have to check some of my transistor radios that take obsolete batteries, then see if Battery Mart has them. Thanks guys, you made my day.
Well made, replica of the old Everready 30V battery used in Tripplett 630 meters.
This battery is not available to me locally. BatteryMart had what I needed, and at the best price that I could find on the internet. In addition, it arrived when they said it would. A good buying experience.
