Default Re: Best place to get PP9s?

Have just checked the size of a B&Q/Screwfix Diall PP9 and it is well within the specification quoted by Mike in the previous post. As mentioned elsewhere the remaining PP9 battery brands (which seem to be Panasonic, Ever Ready Silver and Diall) are probably all made in the same factory anyway so it seems unlikely that battery size is the source of Donald's R303 problem. I don't think Roberts' manufacturing tolerances were very exacting back in the 60s/70s and fitting a battery to one of my two R505s in particular is a fiddly activity.
