Battery power for any of 98xx series?



#3

Hi, per the subject line, I'm wondering if any of the 98xx series of desktop calculators could be powered by batteries. Was this ever an option, from HP or from others?

No, they're just designed to be powered from AC (mains) power. You would need an inverter to run it from a battery, and it would need to be a pretty hefty battery to power them for very long.
