Electronic Valve - Philips Miniwatt, Dual Diode, Type 5V4G/GZ32, circa 1958 Object Reg. No: ST 030184

High vacuum full-wave rectifier. 5 volt indirectly heated cathode. This valve does not appear to have any Philips factory codes, indicating that it is probably a 'Buy in' for the replacement market.

The GZ32 has considerably higher ratings than the 5V4G so presumably this is a GZ32 dual marked to indicate that it is a suitable replacement for the lower rated 5V4G
