Default 19 Set Cable

Any suggestion what these are for. Appears to have 2 Niphan Plug's on one end possibly to go to a Battery Box.

I would say that is correct, probably for 2 12 volts batteries or 2 6 volt batteries, if we get the item number we could look it up.

Could it be the one used with the vehicle/ground station installation using the No 23 carrier. This installation used two battery boxes under the bench.

Yes, it's a standard power lead for WS19 from a pair of 6V 85 AH batteries.

Used with a variety of carriers, 23 or 25, plus permanent installations in Jeeps and Land Rovers (etc.) where you can't use the vehicle batteries (6 volt or float-charged 12 volt systems).

I think its proper name is "Connector, 4-way No.33" or something similar.

There are 2-wire power leads for use with charging switchboards for the various wireless vehicles where you run the set from one set of batteries while charging the second set. The 4-wire with niphan plugs is for direct connection to the batteries, wher you don't have a switchboard, or where freshly-charged batteries are delivered and the used ones taken away for charging at a central point.

I bought two of them for the Niphan connectors.

NO 33

On the 11 set they used two of the 85 AH batteries with the power supplies when away from the vehicle and it used the same sort of setup.
