The sales box of the TI-1006 sold in Europe around 1982.
This box of this TI-1006 states "BATTERY FREE" instead
of the later "LIGHT POWERED" description.

Later boxes of the TI-1006 showed smaller solar cells 
 and stated "LIGHT POWERED" on the calculator.

This TI-1006 was manufactured in October 1982 
by Texas Instruments in Japan (month 10 year 1982).

The internal construction of the TI-1006 manufactured in
1982 looks very familiar to us.

brand is etched in the PCB left from the calculator chip.
