Greetings,

All the 6-volt lantern batteries I have taken apart (estimate 20) are
all four, 1.5-volt cells connected in series. The only difference I can
see from the normal D-Cells is that they are longer.

In my demo box of dead dry cells I have both a 6-volt and 1.5 volt
lantern battery. The 1.5 volt is fastened together so I just cover it
with 2-inch clear cellophane tape. The 6-volt is encased in plexiglas as
it came apart when I took the cardboard off.

Also many other cells, AAA, AA both chargeable and rechargeable, Li-ion
from laptop (8-cells), motorcycle battery cut apart, also encased in
clear cellophane tape.

My pride and joys are: a 90-volt radio battery (60 individual cells), a
7.5-volt radio battery ( 5 individual cells) and a 45-volt radio battery
(30 individual cells).

Another box has cut apart transformers, foil capacitors, etc.

By the way, I cut a D-cell apart the other day and found what I thinks
is an aluminum nail in some rather pasty stuff. What kind of battery is
this.

Speaking of electricity, I have a circuit board composed of 4 light
bulbs and sockets, 3 SPST switches, and 4SPDT switches. Approximately 50
different series, parallel and combination circuits possible by throwing
various switches.

To see a power point of the drawing of the apparatus and solutions go
to:

http://www.cvcaroyals.org/~rheckathorn/REGULAR/WEB%20PAGES/RegularElectr
icCircuits.htm

and click on :Circuit Board Investigations.

The first two I made, operate on 120 V AC

I just made 4 that operate on 6-volts DC. The kids just love them.

I will take a picture and post it on the web site if there is an
interest.

Subject: 6 volt landern battery

How does a 6 volt landern battery differ from 4 1.5 D cells in series?
Does it last longer than 4 1.5 D cells in series?

Thanks Lou Burger
