Ever Ready Battery No 800


Recommended Posts

if you know the voltage we could help you lots,


All the other numbers (amps etc) is irrelevant.


Its voltage and size of the physical battery we need to know.


You could also use a transformer plugged into the mains if you dont need it portable.

I can't remember the size of teh battery exactly, probably 4 inches tall, 3 inches wide and an inch thick. Its 3 or else 4 volts at a guess.

I would like to find an example of the original battery type if possible. I had heard they were still made abroad, but I've not found anything as I only know them as a type 800. They are most likely known by some other reference.

I remember these as a lad take the battery apart thinking i was James Bond defusing a bomb lol And the sound of the metal when a bit rusty screwing the front on would set me teeth on edge.
