The Little Giant Battery.
Improvements in batteries for telephone, burglar alarm and annunciator use are of frequent occurrence. The Rhode Island Telephone and Electric Company, of Providence, have just brought out a battery, known as "The Little Giant," that for durability, compactness and strength is one of the best ever brought to our notice. Wherever the battery has been tried it has given perfect satisfaction, and it is particularly praised for its excellent work with the telephone. One cell has been found to be abundantly powerful enough to work an automatic gas burner, and four is the largest number ever required, although six of other makes are generally found necessary. This battery has been adopted as their standard by the Telegraphic Time Company,which fact is strong proof of its excellence. The jar can be sealed, should it be desired. We expect to see quite a demand for this new battery, as its value becomes known to the electrical field.
