Unidentified varistor

Was tricky to get a photo with the markings visible, but as best I can tell the markings read...

H L1

...The scoring down the middle is from where I haphazardly removed the heat-shrink which was around the component

I have two which have blown and am trying to source replacements.
Would this be a suitable drop-in replacement? (closeup)


For reference, the components are off an old Motorola power supply (board is marked 1991 manufactured by a company named Astec) which is used for charging GP300 handheld radios. Charger output spec is 14V @ 10A (charges up to 6x radios at once).

    \$\begingroup\$ Jeez. You make me feel old. I used to program GP300 radios at work. Now you refer to them as ancient. \$\endgroup\$
