DM43 triple coin battery design?

Why not have the DM43 be a triple coin battery design? I've heard stories of other calculators with such a design that had a battery life expectancy on the order of decades. My DM42 still shows "full" and I've been using it almost daily for a couple of months, but still...

Re: We need you for the 43S. Yes, you!

I'm not really against it. I have never tried it on that side. If the majority want it then maybe there is some advantage to it I can't think of. I am more curious than anything as to why most people prefer it that way.

Personally, I'd say I am fairly agnostic.

Re: We need you for the 43S. Yes, you!

Will the /*-+ keys be on the right or left side in the final version of the DM43?

Re: DM42 usable for just a user?!

What makes these machines great is that they can be used just as a simple RPN calculator or they can be used as a very complex calculator. They do not have a complex button layout so they make great simple calculators with a built-in e-ink screen saver. But in the case where u need more power or hav...

Re: Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

I received my dm42 in the mail yesterday. There was no update through Amazon for tracking information (like there usually is), it just appeared. I was not charged any additional fees beyond the Amazon price. The Amazon price was a bit higher than the SwissMircos price. Amazon seems to have quite a b...

Solar Power

What would happen if you took a solar panel like the one below https://www.amazon.com/Small-Solar-Panel-3V-20mA/dp/B002MAX0FS/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1544984970&sr=8-20&keywords=3+volt+solar+panel Spliced it to a USB cable, and plugged the USB cable into the calculator? I'm not an electronics engine...

If this is true, then it cost me a bit extra.

Maybe this post will help someone else to save some money.

Re: Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

It was more expensive to buy it off Amazon than swissmicros.com for sure. Quite a bit more. I bought it off Amazon anyway. The reason is, I read that sellers are supposed to include all duties/fees in their price when selling on Amazon.ca. So I was hoping there wouldn't be any surprises and buying f...

Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

I notice that the calculator is currently 307 Canadian dollars (plus 23 CAD for shipping) on Amazon. This seems more expensive than directly buying it from Swissmicros. Since Swissmicros 199 CHF price converts to roughly 267 CAD. I don't see a shipping price however. What additional fees are there w...
