I'm 47 and remember well my HP21... and the NiCd packs and the Xacto
battery replacement tricks...

HP pack out, cut, standard commercial NiCd cells snapped in as a
replacement. I wish I could find an HP21 at a flea market here.

My new HP calculator does hex,octal,binary and all the nice
stuff but it's not RPN (shudder).
