Battery Details.

This battery is unobtainable now. The Double PP8, PP8-2, PP8/2 (electric fence battery) is listed as a possible replacement for the PP8 but is almost twice as wide. Looking at the Double PP8, PP8-2, PP8/2 it has 2 sets of connectors on the top so it may be possible to carefully split one of these into 2 seperate PP8 batteries.
