HP 97 calculator


I need help with a HP 97 Calculator adapter. I have
taken the battery pack into "Battery Plus" and had them
recharge the batteries. They informed me that the adapter
is no good. I cannot locate a adapter. Radio Shack had
only 7.5 and 9.0 adapters. They said that I need a 8 VAC
and nothing else would work. The guy said is I could locate a adapter that is equal in voltage, I could cut the
end of the plug off the old adapter and wire it on the new
adapter. Can you help me concerning the adapter and let
me know if I could use the 7.5 or 9.0 and not hurt the
Thank you,

Tony Duell is the person to ask about this.... I think any 8v AC supply would work, but it shouldn't deliver more than 500 ma current or so..

I have a better idea, though. Give me your address and I'll mail you one that works perfectly. (I have extras of these, as they've been included with HP-71B's, when I usually run them on batteries anyway....)
