Warsaw Pact batteries and cells

All Warsaw Pact batteries were NiCads.
There are hermetically sealed batteries and batteries filled with potassium hydroxyde.
Potassium hydroxyde batteries come as "normal " or as starved elecrolyte types.
  • "normal" means, the lye stays in the batteries;
  • "starved electrolyte" means, the batteries are filled with lye, then the lye is removed. So the lye cannot leak out. Important e.g. for portable radios, and the battery belt for the R-353. Also used in the radios of the M- series.
    Only the museum's batteries are shown.

    This non-rechargeable cell serves as
    substitute for two SZD12A.
    You simply dip it in water to activate it. They come in in sheet-metal boxes, hermetically welded, (each box contains twenty cells).

    This is a non-rechargeable
    7.5-Volt-Cell for for R-147 and R-147 P.
    It seems to have been rare from the beginning- the battery box for two 4.5V flat cells coming with the radios seem to prove it.
