Side view of the Zenith "Delegate" sub-model "B" showing how the battery door swings down. This hearing aid used the rather uncommon No. 41 battery. The battery door also acted as the on-off switch.

The volume control is the wheel on the back to the left of the battery door. The microphone port is in the center of the bottom.
