The A165A or TR-165A is a mercury-free replacement for the once popular Mercuric Oxide TR-165 or E165 battery that was commonly used in industrial applications. Mercury cells such as the TR-165 are now banned because of toxicity and environmental fears.

The A165A or TR-165A cells produce 7.5 Volts, which is higher than the 6.8 V produced by the original mercury cell. Most devices accommodate the small increase in voltage and function perfectly.

The A165A or TR-165A cells were used in specialist applications such as the MK-328 spy radio.

The A165A or TR-165A  is likely to be your only choice of battery replacement. Consider buying more than one. These Alkaline cells have a shelf life of several years, so buy two and make sure you always have a ready supply of power for your device whilst taking advantage of our reduced price multi-buy offer.  

The A165 or TR-165A is made from a stack of four PC640A or A640 cells. This is why you sometimes see A640 stamped on the bottom of this battery. It is the stamp on the bottom most cell.
