Type K cell lid depicted above...

Successor Type S lids below.








I've never seen a
      type K Edison-Lalande cell.

If anyone has one,
         please post some pics!  :thumbup

I wonder if the K cell lids were
marked "Edison."

Maybe rubber stamped before
vitrification such as the S cell lids
above?


If without Edison markings, today,
99.99999% wouldn't have a clue it
was a cell lid, let alone an Edison
cell lid.

Maybe one in ten million is a bit
too optimistic?   :wondering:

These Edison batteries are great. Has anyone ever seen any of the William M Griscom batteries? It was made with 6 one gallon jars. I have thought of using the Edison cells to try and make something similar.

I've never seen.

May be nonexistent, today.

But what's that saying I've heard
a certain Arkie say a time or two?










p.s.   Mice must really think that wood is tasty.   :shock:
