The EL86 is an output pentode with an anode dissipation of 12 Watts. The EL86 is designed for a higher anode current and lower anode voltage than the EL84. This would suit transformerless designs of the type called single ended push pull see data-sheet. It was also specified for use as a series regulator.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B9A base pins, is 68 mm tall.
References: Datasheet & 1040. Type EL86 was first introduced in 1956.
