Batteries for Vintage Transistor Radios

PP9 Battery

I have had a lot of enquiries about batteries for old Transistor sets the situation is as follows. PP9 and PP7 batteries are still availiable in the UK. Stockists such as Maplins supply over the counter or by post.Perform a search on the www using either PP9 or PP7 as the search criteria to locate other stockists. How do you tell which one you need?.
Measure the ammount of space you have in the battery compartment. A PP7 is 46mm square by 60mm high.
While a PP9 is 52 x 66mm and 81mm high.
