Can anyone tell me the date range when any of these battery bars were manufactured? Novak, Deans, S&K
I'd like to use them in period correct builds...

I soldered up a few packs using the DEANS back before the turn of the century around '97. No idea how long the LHS had them on the shelf until then though. It seems though that the raised bar style would be a later type.
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I am fairly certain that there were actually two versions of the Dean's bars. The ones shown in the picture above were the later style that were popular through the NiMH era of RC racing.
Something clever goes here...
