Default When did pins migrate from batteries to electricity???

Having just gone over my 1934 Genco Subway Special, it is obviously battery powered....I just picked up a Chicago Coin Sensation of 1937 and it is electric...but I could not imagine technology changed so much in only a couple of years. It looks as if the CC projects the image onto the back of the backglass to show the score. It also has a tilt bob and gates that open and close. So I guess the question is....when did batteries stop being a part of the old pin technology??? Thanks Mike
