Two calculators which I recently added to the collection:
Battery: Solar/Battery Backup
Cost: I paid $12.99
This is a basic scientific calculator. Expressions are entered as-is and are evaluated by pressing the equals key. [ = ] The calculator is small, compact, and thin, and the keyboard feels real good. The numbers on screen are big, clear, and readable.
* Fraction calculation and conversions
* Rectangular and polar conversions
* Three memory registers: X, Y, and M. M+ and M- are available.
* One Variable Statistics (Mode 1)
If you want a basic, compact scientific calculator, consider getting this model.
On a separate note, still waiting for that solar-powered RPN calculator, Hewlett Packard. J
Calculated Industries Home ProjectCalc Model 8510
Type: Home Construction
Battery: Battery (CR 1620)
Cost: I paid $14.95
This is a simple home construction calculator that covers five specific calculations (the top row of blue keys):
* The number of gallons, quarts, or paints needed to paint a wall of a given area
* The number of rolls of wallpaper needed for a wall.
* The number of tiles needed to recover a floor, given the area of a floor. Common measurement of tiles are used in the calculation.
* The length of rolls, of 12 feet, 13 feet, and 15 feet, of carpet to cover a floor.
* The number of bags of concrete needed.
Another plus is the ability execute calculations in yards-feet-inch and meters, probably one of my most favorite features of the Calculated Industries calculators. We can also work with measured areas and volumes. The π key returns the rounded value of 3.141593.
