Can I substitute a standard 9 volt battery? The older style is hard to find and expensive. This was in a old Toshiba sw/mw transistor radio I came across. I would like to test it to see if it works, without damaging it.

Nine volts dc is 9 Vdc, no matter the source. Smaller batteries generally have shorter useful lifetimes, of course. See:

Scroll down -- it's just the info you need!

73,

I took a look online and there is a reproduction battery only 220 mah and costs $20.00
If you look up an energizer 522 it's 600 mah and only costs $4.00
didn't look at dimensions but if it would fit...........

I just wanted to know if a 9 v "standard" battery would work to "test" this radio without damaging it.

I know you guys are knowledgeable about such things, quick easy to understand replies would be more helpful to "newbies"

Next time I will try to be more precise in my question.

Thank you and good day!
