Re: 211 Replacement Batteries


It was pretty stupid of me to forget the link.
This is the email I wrote years ago:

Note: the link is broken across 3 lines.
It is very hard to find this battery pack on this site so use the link.

Hi Harvey,

Fortunately there is a great company that makes exact replacement battery
packs for the 214 and they are very inexpensive.
Here is a link:

It's tough getting there. It's under Medical and Scientific batteries.
The company that makes them is called BulbTronics. They are the ones that
supplied me with the batteries for my 214 scope.

The battery packs they made up were a perfect fit, very professionally
and dirt cheap. The scope ran for over 5½ hours on them which was almost
twice the Tek specification.

Best thing to do is go to their web site and fill out an email request.
is the way you have to request that they make up a pack for you. It's more
than a little strange but it is worth it. You will appreciate that when the
batteries arrive.

Please share the link you mentioned so I can check out their batteries.
ALSO, beware that the power supply sections of some of the "2XX" models that
use these batteries will not regulate unless a good battery is installed,
and will send excessive voltages to the rest of the circuitry. Thanks,

Hi Bob,
If that is the case then you are in luck because this link will
connect you with a company that makes an identical replacement for the
Tek batteries.

Yesterday I bought a model 211 scope at the Dalton hamfest. While it
works I need to replace the batteries.
