6 volt battery

Postby spivey » Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:06 am

Does anyone have a junk 6 volt battery they want to sell. It doesn't need to hold a charge, I just need the case. Sorry if this question has already been asked. I've been looking through the posts and haven't seen one.

oops, sorry George, yours is still sitting behind my shop, I turned it upside down to let all the acid drain out of it and completely forgot about it. I'll try to get it to ya this week.

And yet another person is planning on hollowing out a battery shell
and use a sealed emergency lighting battery instead.
I did that 3 years ago and the same $30 battery is still going strong. :D

I found a -54 OEM Richardson battery in an alley a few blocks from home, about four years or so ago.

Geoff Erdos has copied it, and produced exact cases to house modern batteries.
Sorry I haven't a link or email,

PS: Now I have no need to cut up the real thing. Someday, somebody may specialize in re-lead-ing them, and that would truly be a restored historical artifact to be proud of. Not that it is not a dumpster trophy as it is..

Yep... My Panasonic Emergency Lighting battery has lasted, and that is several winters in a unheated shed..... always has a good strong charge in it.

I just don't like the looks.
