I have no idea what I am looking at, but these batteries look very small


They look like watch batteries Don....... You know the kind of watch that has the little Solar collector that constantly recharges as a trickle to extend battery life.

Similar batteries are also used in the Laser Level market/Calculator market and Yes, even the Lighted Fishing Bobber market :)

How About Cell Phone Battery Packs??? Seems to me they hold quite a charge and last for years. The smaller cell phone battery packs would easily fit in a Shay climax or porter, particullarly if you had an all weather cab..........they could certainly be made to fit in a shorty tender also.

Heres an interesting tidbit on batteries
Service Life means "how many charge cycles will the battery last before it won't charge anymore". Go to our "Battery Guide" page to see how the chemistry a battery uses affects its service life. All newer cellphones use Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) chemistry, or the more expensive Lithium Polymer (Li-Poly). Newer chemistries will take more charge cycles, so while more expensive, they are usually a better value.


Heres an example of an inexpensive (comparably) cell phone battery..Lithium Ion that has over 3 hours of talk time...note the battery size of 73mm x 45 mm x 10mm
