What the Threads Are For
Every one of the 196,000 threads in the
Threaded Rubber Insulation of the Still Better
Willard has a definite mission.
Every thread allows free passage to the battery
solution. Through this multitude of tiny paths
the chemical action which means a good, strong
current goes on with perfect freedom.
No insulation ever used has equalled hard
rubber in ability to resist tvery-day wear and
tear. No method of conducting current through
the hard rubber has the efficiency of the tiny
threads. And the combination is found only in
the Still Better Willard Battery. Let us tell
you more about this insulation and the battery
that uses it.
