|Tungar Bulb (Unknown Mfr.)||

A tungar bulb is a simple type of rectifier tube used to generate DC current in car battery chargers and other similar devices. The tube has a lightbulb-style base which connects to a directly heated cathode; the anode connection protrudes from a clay bead at the top of the tube. The heavy silvering and side nipple make the tube rather attractive, despite its primitive construction. Part number is unknown.
