The TI-1600 and its siblings TI-1650, TI-1680 were very flat calculators compared to the previous TI-1200 models. Only one year in front of the first pocket-sized LCD-calculators you could carry them in your shirt.
the TI-1600 or one of its sibling is difficult, three small plastic locks have
to be bent together in different directions.
The technology behind the TI-1600 is similar to the TI-1265, instead of the normal 9V battery a very flat (custom made by French company SAFT) rechargeable battery is used.
Sales figures kept low, soon after the TI-1600 the first LCD-calculators appeared on the market.
