Transistor Radio Batteries

As the name suggests, these batteries were originally used as a power source for early transistor radios and are suitable for use in vintage radios, meters and lanterns. These rectangular batteries feature polarized snap connectors and come in a range of sizes. They are available in primary zinc-carbon or alkaline chemistry.

We currently stock the Panasonic PP9 transistor radio battery. This rare battery uses zinc-carbon chemistry and is ideal for low drain devices which cannot be powered with a more modern style of battery.
