TI-59 question

Fair enough ....

That would still leave about 8 volts after double-phase
rectification to charge the nicads with. (thru a 4.7ohm
internal resistor)

Never operate the TI59 without the nicads! when
the machine is turned on the excess voltage
will be dumpt into them so the -vbat will be kept at
-3.7 Volts! To operate it without nicads might
toast the machine !!!!
