A & B batteries?  So they didn't skip over those two letters, after all! :-)

(Yeah, I'm a young'un, relatively speaking... all I've ever known of the
battery universe is AAA/AA/C/D cells, plus 9 Volt "transistor" batteries
and those big 6 Volt "lantern" batteries.  So just what were A and B
batteries, in relation to those?  And when did they disappear, or are
they still around today, just hidden away from the young'uns like myself?)
