Okay, so you whippersnappers know what an AA, AAA, C, and D cell look like. You may have even tripped across an AAAA or an N. But didja ever wonder about A and B? They had to have existed, right? Your friends at the Radio Corporation of America sold all sorts of cells, available inside this nice metal display case.

When I was at Radio Shack, I encountered devices that used those sizes... a pocket radio that needed a B (oops, outta luck) and a multimeter that used an A (which is the same size and voltage as a C, just square, so it was an easy swap).

i have made various shots of the PCB.

here the LED chip, and the crystal imprint can be seen.

the batteries have 170mAh, which is pretty high for their size.

one 9V block contains 7 cells, at €3.50 (recent price drop), this battery just costs €1.

compare to a commercial button cell battery (NiMH), which costs €6.59, and capacity is only about 15mAh.

well normally you can not just rip up a duracell 9v battery, at least not when you resell the stuff.
for prototype it should be OK.
