I'm visiting a city called Poços de Caldas and, when I go into a chinese store, look what I found!

Sure! I would add one to my collection, but I doubt that they will be imported into Europe. With copyright laws and everything...

These haven't been imported to Brazil either. Most likely they were produced in China and some have been smuggled to the country. We do have copyright laws and counterfeit products are forbidden. It happens the government has been taken over by outlaws who ought to be in jail rather than in office - Some have actually spent a few months behind bars but are all at loose now. These people respect no law and allow them to be broken.

I don't understand: this is a true Moure Jar ® MJ-12MS, what are you talking about?

Interestingly, in Portuguese "mourejar" is a verb which means "to work like a Moor", that is, to work too much, without rest:

RE: What a surprise!
I was looking for a charger to my N type batteries, for my 41, and, when I saw that calculator I could not believe they would had copied the 11C or 15C.
So, I took it on my hands and, as many of you said, it's almost impossible to read the printings on keyboard.
The keys are made of rubber. Very poor response to press.
The display is a two line (the upper one is of dot points and the lower is of segments, like 15C).
It is the same of a popular scientific calculator sold by here, just the keyboard got another terrible layout.
Looking from front, it seems like 11C, but from side, it has a compartment for AAA batteries on backs. So, it sits on desk making an angle, which is interesting.
Not a collectble item, only if you want to make the horror cicus collection!
By the way: I found the charger there too. Something I was looking for years! It has four adjustables connectors and I believe they will get the N batteries directly!

It also sells under the Gaona brand name, and is really cheap! Aside form the overall format it's nothing like any Voyager. Based on the closeup pictures here, it's not RPN and not programmable.

RE: What a surprise!
Say what? a 2-line display and a "Replay" cursor key into a 12C base?? Holy smoke, this is avantgarde hardware design at its best!

NOT~!
