Another use for "Exit" - it reformats the number you've just typed into the current display format without lifting the stack afterwards.

I think I must just be old-school but reaching for the calculator is the last stage in my thinking. Wouldn't dream of plugging numbers in without a clear vision of what I'm doing with them.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong and I'm the only one to have this problem with "enter", but for this use at least "exit" is changing my life right know

You can also press EXIT after entering a number, and it will only change the X register without disabling automatic stack lift.

Re: Battery life

Michael exchanged my beta calculator for a production model (the PCB part) and the battery drain issue vanished. Maybe connect an ammeter in series with a regulated supply and see what the current does when the calculator is swiched off? Sounds like you've the same issue I had. I am curious what the...
