    Default Still looking for a BA-37 Battery for a BC-611 Handi Talkie Radio....

    Ok with several peoples help from over here, I now have a original BA-38 103 volt battery.

    Now I'm trying to find a BA-37 Battery.

    It does not need to even work, I just want one for display. It looks like a D cell just twice as long. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    As it is only for show, have you thought of making a dummy battery? Dimensions here:-

    It shouldn't be too difficult print the cardboard sleeve.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I have thought of about that. Rayovac used to make a industrial flashlight battery that was 2 D Cells made in 1 case. But I have not seen that in years. I thought about trying to find one of those, but no luck so far.....

    A lot of the old cardboard cells when split apart turned out to be two or more standard carbon zinc cells wired together. Often quite easy to fit a modern plastic battery box.

    I have one of the power inverters that Pietro makes for use. I'm looking for a BA-37 battery just to display with a BA-38, I have.
