The info below is to provide some basic
information for those wishing to make functional and authentic looking batteries
Radiola IV or other battery radios
of the 1920s. I have reproduction labels of original batteries of various brands
available and can be seen and ordered by clicking
here. I offer detailed
making the "A" cells.
To make your own "B" & "C" cells, I provide only
basic info, other details are left up to one's imagination and abilities. The
measurements for the batteries I made (and what you get when ordering) are
provided on the enlarged views. The "B" battery labels do not have adhesive
backing and must be cut and trimmed after mounting to your box.
