May be you're right, but I don't want to use AAAA-batteries. Taking apart 9V batteries and soldering them in anytime you have to replace the batteries seems uncomfortable to me.
This is exactly my thinking as well.

In general, I much prefer a calculator to be powered by AA- or AAA-sized batteries (even if it needs to be a few millimeters thicker), simply because they are readily available and this would allow me to use low self-discharge rechargeable NiMH batteries (Eneloop etc.).
I would also accept the much rarer AAAA batteries, if I could thereby avoid using coin cells, however, I would have no fun extracting them from 9V blocks and soldering them in every couple of months - even in DIY projects I prefer "clean" and professional-level solutions. This, unfortunately, rules out this otherwise nice idea for me, at least in the WP 34S.

Now, if a AAAA battery holder could be fitted... But that's just wishful thinking...
