LC-842 looks completely different to all other known Toshiba calculators. Instead the
brushed metal housing of e.g. a LC-830, it uses a plastic top
mounted on a metal plate. Quality matches with the LC-8000.
Dismantling the LC-842 reveals indeed a novel construction, the batteries are connected with small, conductive rubber elements instead the usual bended metal contacts.
The successor of the LC-842 could be found with the odd HB-101.
