Hello Mike,

 

That is the 1,000,000$ question.

My `@#$%^&*)+ brother in-law, a few years ago decided to throw that battery away, since, (in his narrow mind), it was no good.

From the picture you sent me, ( and from what I remember), this is what it "looked like". I know this is not much, but I willing to try it..

Let's assume that the number you mention is the correct one, if the voltage is 1.35 V, it will certainly do the trick.

The technology has changed a lot. Originaly, since it was mercury containing battery, the output voltage was 1.35 Vdc.

Now with the ban on mercury, the alkalyne/acid technology has replaced it. this chemical reaction howver produces a 1.47 Vdc output. I have leaned from the manufacturer of the cell, (Mallory), that the difference in voltage is within the range of the operating frenquency range, (resonance frequency), of the crystal, (quartz).

Yes I believe the output on these batteries is 1.5. Thanks Mike
