Notes

Large AB battery pack used in Zenith Trans Oceanics, Zenith Universal portables and other multiband tube portables.

Equivalents:

  • Eveready 752 (NCC/Union Carbide, not UK Ever Ready)
  • Burgess G6B60
  • Eveready 752
  • Neda 400
  • Hallicrafters P999
  • Ray-O-Vac AB995
  • Sears 6401
  • RCA VS047

Unlike the Neda 401 / Eveready 753 there doesn't appear to be a UK Ever Ready equvalent.

Various sizes are given and also some evidence that later the pack was a little shorter or different brand was slightly smaller.

Contained 4 stacks of 15 layer cells for 90V HT and 6 off "F" type cells (about 50% longer than D cells) for 9V LT.

Battery compartment can be misleading for size as the radioconnector protrudes more than other types of battery and many Zenith Transoceanic sets used a separate Z1 cell for scale lamp/dial bulb.

Dimensions given vary:

  • W: 343 ... 368 mm
  • H: 104 ... 114 mm
  • D: 63.5 ... 70 mm

Note that on a Zenith Transoceanic the base of the battery is toward front panel and thus H & D of the compartment are swapped.

Net weight (2.2 lb = 1 kg) 2.750 kg / 6 lb 0.9 oz (6.057 lb)
