1 x Energizer Max PP3 style 9 volt battery

These are the ones that Taylor (UK) RECOMMEND for your beloved Taylor Electro Acoustic guitar.
New supplier now sourced. Batteries now shipped in original SEALED retail packaging.

NOT just your average ordinary 9v battery !
For some reason Taylor (and several other manufacturers) have made their battery compartment too thin for just about EVERY 9 volt battery we’ve ever come across EXCEPT this one.
The battery that Taylor Guitars fit at the factory has been increasing hard to source here in the UK. According to Duracell themselves they do NOT make this battery for the European market any more. They said there are however loads of FAKE Duracell Batteries around but no official ones. There might be old (and still valid) stocks of the Duracell Slim batteries around somewhere but according to Duracell they are not making them any longer.
Therefore, we have tried many many other types of batteries with no success. This specific Energiser battery is the one that fits. It might not be the ONLY one but to save you the hassle that we have been through trying all sorts then we and Taylor UK recommend this exact one.

It is the only one we’ve found that fits comfortably without forcing, cramming or stretching (and breaking) the battery holder.

Check out the measurements:

16.5mm thick x 25.7mm wide x 47.5mm tall (max to top of contacts)

or 43.90mm tall from the bottom of the battery to the top of the battery body

MOST other batteries Duracel Plus, Panasonic, HW, Maxel etc etc seem to be around 17.2mm thick and over 16mm wide. Even the standard new Duracal Duralock batteries don’t fit. Funny how that 0.7mm makes a whole world of difference.

We’ve seen sooo many cases of people FORCING batteries into the battery holder, even putting them in the wrong way around and damaging the delicate Taylor ES circuitry. No need – just use these batteries.
DON’T force your battery into the battery holder again and run the risk of damage.
