Message #1 Posted by Hugo on 8 Mar 2007, 3:24 a.m.

I recently found an HP 97 without peripherals and i wander if i can use a charger of the HP41 printer (82143A) to test it? Can i do so without risk to damage the HP97? Does anyone have experience with this? thanks for helping me out!

Same charger, same battery pack. Be sure to have a working battery in the 97, otherwise it will behave strangely--even on AC, the 97 needs a working battery back installed to properly complete the circuit and work correctly.
