This battery weighed 8 oz., and  measured 3 7/8" by 2 5/8" by 15/16".

The Eveready 455-P "B" battery was often paired with an Eveready 1052-P (the round battery on the left), or a 1060-P "A" battery in the 2-piece vacuum tube hearing aids.

According to this ad that appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, January 22, 1949, the battery cost $1.90.

This ad shows the Eveready 455-P 45 volt "B" battery (left) paired with the Eveready 1052-P 1˝ volt "A" battery (right). As you can see, the "B" battery was more than 7 times as expensive as the "A" battery, but it also lasted longer.
