|HP-19c battery pack replacement (again...)|
Message #1 Posted by Xavier A. (Brazil) on 21 Sept 2011, 8:28 a.m.
I acquired a few weeks ago an old full-working HP-19c, delivered with 4 'new' - in box - Clartech Ni-Cad 800 mAh cells ; it seems to be a French brand, since user's instructions are in french only.
The first instruction recommends to "charge before use", which is obvious, but I am wondering if it is possible to charge them within the calculator, with the official HP adapter. I already charged the cells out of the calc and everything works perfectly.
Of course I read a lot of threads on the subject in this forum, Katie's recommendations included; it seems that some cheap Ni-Cad cells are not recommended, but is it a risk to dammage the calc charging it (with my cells) directly from HP adapter?
Any feedback will be appreciated, thank you.
(edited to correct my english!)
