Shiny new 16C!



#9

Well I finally got a 16C in my collection !!

There is something wonderful about receiving a 'new old stock' HP - the quality is just amazing.

Har! Mine looked like that, when I bought it duty-free at Singapore airport in 1983 or so. These days, it's beaten up, but still working - because the quality is just amazing. ;)

Best,

Congrats:-)

So you caught the still factory sealed NOS 16C from the bay?


#12

Hi Raymond, yes it came from the UK seller who seems to have many of them!! It really was new - even the batteries are original and still working.

union carbide A 76 cells?


#14

Yeah I got one last month , the lady who's selling them told me her husband used to be a HP dealer but went Apple, Apple somehow stopped them selling anything else so they stashed the stock away for some 15/20 years.

Get those batteries out and replaced ASAP!

I still have two of an original set of three over 25 year old union carbide batteries. The other one just went dead. They're sitting on a shelf to see when they go bad.

Another example of a company that made good things but got destroyed by bean counters and middle managers who had no interest in the product being made - just profit and their cushy positions.

No these are LR44's - very flat, barely clinging onto life.
