Vintage Novelty Crompton Vidor HP2 High Power Battery Radio

This is a fantastic Vintage Novelty Crompton Vidor HP2 High Power Battery Radio.

An AM only radio, in the shape of a battery, which has just two thumb wheel controls; one for volume and other for tuning. The speaker is underneath the grille at the top of the radio.

Approximate Size:

  • Diameter: 6.7cm
  • Height: 13cm (including the metal contact)

In working order, the cylindrical metal case does have a few scuffs and scratches but what a statement piece! It takes a PP3 battery, which is inserted by rotating and removing the plastic base cover: the battery is not included due to the difficulties in shipping. Receiving a decent signal can be a little time consuming but being near a window seems to help...

Obviously an advertising piece for a Vidor battery, it dates to about the 1970s. It was made in Hong Kong.
