Excerpt: This calculator is really great. It is the size of a credit card and doesn't weigh much, but the numbers are large and easy to read. I know most people can do calcs on their phones, but the numbers can be hard to see. This is easy to throw in my purse and really comes in handy for figuring out the per unit price at the store. Also, the kids like to use it and at this price, I don't worry about them breaking it.
we solved this with some super glue, but I would call that a design ...

Summary: Because the top lid is designed to be unscrewed to add a battery backup, if desired, the clamshell action will cause the top lid to separate when opening the calculator, as there isn't a wide enough ledge to grip without interfering with the backing. Because we had no need for battery backup, we solved this with some super glue, but I would call that a design flaw. Otherwise, it works like any standard calculator should.
Wonderful compact size - folds up like a woman's compact

Summary: Wonderful compact size - folds up like a woman's compact. Fits in the palm of your hand. Easy to use, and easily read buttons and screen. I use it four times a day at my desk at work and marvel at how well-built, solid and useful it is - and how well it stays new looking even with continual use. Great for my desk 4ather than continually using the big electric calculator I use at budget time or big projects and takes up way to much space on my desk.
Summary: Love these. Have one in the kitchen for recipes, one on the bedroom nite stand for late nite HSN or QVC or even my favorite Amazon shopping. Shopping in bed can be dangerous to your well being.
Summary: My husband bought me this calculator for Christmas one year and I wasn't sure I was going to like it but it turned out to be a good investment...! I recently purchased another for "backup "and was thrilled when I saw Amazon carried them....It's a nice small calculator with big numbers and works well....I am a happy customer!
