Great to know Tony! Yea the battery is dead indeed! Will the wallwart power it even though the battery is dead? Wish I could remember where I put the wall warts... missing are the one for a 16 line portable, a disc drive and the thinkjet printer.
Oddly enough the HP 75 we have is missing its wall wart too! HP 75 also uses the HIL i/o interface. will it know how to red the disc drive? I am missing HP 75 data and catalogs.... Ed#

The 16 line display version is the original HP Portable (HP110), not
They both use the same AC adapter/charger which gives 8V AC. It's the
same unit used
with the Topcat calculators (HP91, HP92, HP95C, HP97, HP97S) and most
of the HPIL
peripherals. There were various versions with different input voltages
and mains plug
connectors but it shouldn't be hard to find one.
The Portable and PortablePlus have an internal lead-acid battery.
Originally 3 Cyclon
cells (2.5Ah) in series, later a Panasonic (IIRC) block. The Cyclon
cells are not
difficult to get new, so I normally wire 3 of those up, using the
terminal plate from
the original battery pack.
