Wood battery case. The three battery "jars" that held the electrolyte fit in that case.

The wood battery case slips down inside an original dimension metal battery box. It will not fit into one of the current reproduction boxes available from the vendors.

Larry Smith occasionally fabricates some original dimension metal battery boxes. He does not reproduce the original dimension metal lid that fits onto the top of the metal box.

The rubber battery case that Dan posted was introduced in 1925, and used until the end. They support the lid real good, better than the wood battery case.

Ron, the wood battery case pictured above is not a battery box!

Ron, the wood battery case pictured above is not a battery box! The metal battery boxes I make are tested to an original wood battery case before I ship them. An original battery case will NOT fit in the current battery boxes available elsewhere. That is why I had to make them!

Uh, If its not a battery box than what is it?!

Hi John,

I think that some, most, ALL(?), of the confusion comes from the words used to describe these artifacts.

The wooden box with it's metal handles and the rubber case are THE BATTERY without it's internal pieces.

The battery box is the protective metal enclosure which fits into the battery carrier and holds the battery.

I hope that this helps. Bill
