Ibico - Model 081X


Brand: Ibico
Model: Model 081X
Type: Calculator
Batteries: L1131 x 1 & Solar
Lifetime: Introduced: unknown
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Plain calculator with square root and memory functions.

This calculator is dual powered, there's a solar cell as well as a battery. When the battery runs out it is very hard to open the case. There's one screw at the bottom and when unscrewed one needs to apply quite a lot of pressure to open the case, especially since the case is glued to the black cover.

This calculator displays negative numbers using the text "MINUS -" at the top left of the display. Errors are indicated by an "ERROR" sign at the top right of the display. When there's a non-zero number in the calculator's memory it displays "MEMORY'.

There's also a "GPM"-key but I haven't yet figured out what it does... "GPM" might stand for Graduated Payment Mortgage.

Many thanks to Suzan Waucomont for donating this calculator!
