Your comments:

  • These batteries were used for model glow plug engines as well. I still have a Cox Baby Bee 049 engine. It required a special clip for the cylinder head and at the other end of the two connecting wires a Paxolin board. On the board were two metal studs the correct size and distance apart to push into the battery.

  • I used to sell these batteries, our electrical shop was visited by van salesmen from Ever Ready/Exide and Vidor. From memory the AD35 1.5v LT and B126 90v HT (see A0181) were used in The Sky Queen and Sky Princess portable radios.
