Battery, Warranty, and
The hp 12c is shipped with one 3 Volt CR2023 Lithium battery. Battery life
depends on how the calculator is used. If the calculator is being used to perform
operations other than running programs, it uses much less power.
A battery symbol ( ) shown in the upper-left corner of the display when the
calculator is on signifies that the available battery power is running low. When the
battery symbol begins flashing, replace the battery as soon as possible to avoid
Use only a fresh battery. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
Installing a New Battery
The contents of the calculator's Continuous Memory are preserved for a short time
while the battery is out of the calculator (provided that you turn off the calculator
before removing the battery). This allows you ample time to replace the battery
without losing data or programs. If the battery is left out of the calculator for an
extended period, the contents of Continuous Memory may be lost.
