Z-1 Reproduction 1.5-volt Batteries and Labels for 8G005 and 600 Series Trans-Oceanic Tube Radios



Replica 1.5 volt Zenith Z-1 battery for 8G005 and 600 Series Trans-Oceanics

8G005 series Trans-Oceanics, like the 7G605, have a six tube filament string, and also require an additional 1.5 volts in the A supply. Zenith provided a stronger, single cell 1.5 volt battery, the Z-1, in place of the paralled D cells used in the 7G605. In the 600 series, the Z-1 simply powers a separate the dial light circuit, even when the radio is used on AC power. None of the 500 series radios, G500 or H500 models, require a supplementary battery. A quality replica handbuilt from PCV plastic, it is a near match in dimensions to the orginal Z-1. Approximately 4" long. There is some variation in battery compartment sizes among all models of Trans-Oceanics depending on the size stops Zenith used during production. If you encounter a problem fitting your battery box or Z-1 in your radio, we can customize a box or Z-1 for you. Requires one C cell, not included.
