The Spice battery compartment was little better, and the Classic battery compartment cover is only slightly better yet...way over-complicated. The Woodstock battery/door assembly is one of the best HP ever managed to design...but then they ruined it with the self-destructing battery charging system...very very incompetent design!!!

It always amazes me when the first ten years of HP calculator design is held up as some sort of golden age. Whenever I hear or read of such an outlook, I'm pretty sure the person stating it has no real knowledge of HP calculator history...at least, as one who actually used them in contemporary times.
