I got to looking at the old 15V battery in my Simpson meter. Then went looking online for curiosity. Ebay has this linked brand of itfor about 16$ and that seems reasonable as it is a modern alkaline. However my old battery still zeros OK on ohms so it is not super pressing except in the 260 I have, this battery is needed for the overload protection, too. Thinking of getting a spare, assuming shelf life may be long. I went to that company website and they make all sorts of batteries like B equivalents etc. Here: http://www.exellbattery.com/products/ev ... batteries/
I am sure you will pay well for them but that is an easy way if you got the cash.

Interesting but since NO prices were listed, not even suggested retail, I am thinking they are overpriced.

Many of the Exellbattery products are available on eBay and Amazon. They aren’t cheap, but they are the only game in town. I suppose we should just be happy someone is still offering these obsolete products.

Certainly can not disagree with that, Darrell. Heck, this stuff was supposed to be in the dump decades ago! We just keep it going. I have several HH Scott amplifiers that are over 60 years old, just singing away. HH Scott would never believe that they are still going.

They got a round 9V battery, I need to see if it is the one that fits an old Motorola transistor pocket radio I have. Even if I added the right connector, a regular 9 will not fit in it. Unless of course, it costs more than the radio is worth!

The cheapest way to replace a battery in a Transistor device is to simply stack 1.5 or 3 volt watch batteries (button cells) together, tape around them, solder a wire to a connector on each end, and voila!

Inflation has set in n, I just clicked the link and they are $21.58! Maybe that is the east coast price :mrgreen:
