The battery only P114BQ was released a few months after the P131MBQ (shown on previous page), and was slightly smaller as the receiver did not need to house mains supply components, coupled with the fact that the receiver was less well specified anyway. It is described as being housed in a "jewel" case, as "jewel" case receivers are considered to be smaller than "attaché" case receivers (in an obvious reference to the "genuine article"). Instead of the metal chassis fitted in the P131MBQ, the P114BQ utilises a printed circuit board (PCB) as a component base. Operating on MW and LW, a simpler oversize dial and knob formed the tuning control for the P114BQ. The receiver was again available in two colour versions, with a frame aerial concealed within the lift-up lid. Costing £9.9.6 +pt it featured a valve line-up of DK96, DF96, DAF96, DL96.
