TI-1032_Bat.jpg (11704 Byte)The TI-1032 is actually only one half of a slimline calculator. The flat bottom of the case shell was exchanged with a stepped one that accommodates 2 huge AA-cells. 

This modification was done for the European market, you'll locate a similar approach with the TI-30 LCD. In the United Kingdom even the Little Professor (1982) received this modification.
