You can probably build something with epoxy/rubber and a couple
of pins off a female DB-25 connector..

A word of caution: if you are going to build a charger with a 6.3V
transformer, keep in mind that the chargers that TI provided
for this and other calculators had very high secondary winding
resistances; I just measured mine, and it is 16 ohms. I have
no idea about the reactance, though.

The high resistance in effect limits the maximum current across
the rectifier diodes and battery. I suspect that if you connect
a < 3ohm transformer something might burn.
