Vipro24, 1944

In the 1940’s the anode battery of the battery-powered radio was often replaced with an anode tension device in those countryside households that didn’t have electricity yet. It meant that they didn’t have to take used anode batteries to the radio shop to be charged. Vipro took its power from a 2-volt glow accumulator.

Vipro, type 24, was an anode tension device that Helsinki-based Viljo Ruusuvaara’s radio factory designed and manufactured for Nordell & Koskinen.
