Replacement Battery Boxes for Jim Pointivient's large and small ABBattery solid state power supplies

One of the best and most popular power supplies for tube Zenith Trans-Oceanics and certain other portable tube radios is Jim Pointivient's "abbattery." There are two sizes, a large ABBattery that replaces NEDA 400 size batteries, like the Zenith Z-985, and a small ABBattery to replace NEDA 401 size batteries, like the Eveready 753. Use these boxes to replace the plain box that ships with Jim's "abbattery."

Replacement boxes are available for both the original NEDA 400 Zenith Z-985 sized boxes used in the Zenith Trans-Oceanic, RCA Strato-World, and Hallicrafters TW-1000. A replacement box is also available for Jim's smaller NEDA 401 Eveready 753 type power pac.

These boxes have modified graphics and a center or off-center connector hole to mate with the "abbattery" power pack. The NEDA 400 style Type AB replacement boxes work with the similar Zenopac power supply.

Jim's ABBattery Power Pac is NOT included. Shipping and handling will be added at PayPal Check-Out.

To order an ABBattery from Jim Pointivient, Check EBay listings or contact him at abbattery@aol.com.
