I need an Eveready 1016 and a 412. The 1016 is 1.5V and the 412 is 22.5V. Need a cross reference to a modern part number. Hoping someone has an older catalog with a cross reference table.

Thank you,

Eveready 412 is a 22.5V battery commonly used in hearing aids and early transistor radios like the Regency TR-1. Exell is the only company currently producing a compatible substitute, product number is 412A. However, they retail for about $25 a piece and the physical dimensions may be slightly larger. A more affordable option would be to use a dual holder for A23 batteries which would be 24 volts in a slightly smaller form factor. The extra 1.5V will not harm anything.

I should add that there is a Chinese made 22.5v battery of the same size that turns up on eBay from time to time for about $10-15 a piece, however the quality is suspect based on the reviews.

Eveready 1016 cross-references to a 3V battery, Do you mean Eveready 1015? This would be a 1.5V A battery the same size as a modern AA.

What is it you are powering that you need those particular batteries for?

Early hearing aid with subminiature tubes would be my guess. A number of them used this particular battery arrangement. Be interesting if it was something else though...

The very rare Belmont Boulevard pocket radio.

Now, that is interesting! Those don't turn up too often. I've seen photographs of the chassis, it's quite a cramped contraption. Two AA were indeed used for the filament supply and a dual A23 holder should easily fit in there.

I'm impressed, that's a VERY hard to get radio! Please post a pic of it, esp the inside. I think Hunter's suggestion of a dual A23 holder might be your best bet, and the batteries are dirt cheap if you buy from eBay Chinese sellers.
