Type: Calculator
Picture: PHILIPS SBC 1881
Batteries: AA x 3
Lifetime: Introduced: unknown
Terminated: unknown
Notes: This calculator, dubbed a "Semi Desk-Top Thermal Printer" by PHILIPS is the bigger sibling of the the PHILIPS SBC 1880 calculator with printer.

The calculator has all the basic functions plus memory, root and percentages. It has a build-in printer and despite its size is still quite light.

The "TAB"-key can be used to determine the number of decimals. When set to "2" the calculator can used conveniently work with currency.

There is hardly anything to be found on-line on this calculator. It is probably not designed by PHILIPS but an OEM model. The one in my collection was found at a flea market and is pristine, never used, and with its original packaging and thermal paper rolls.


A power adapter, 4,5V at 300mA.
