TI-2200-II_C0387_Back.jpg (203033 Byte)The TI-2200 II Checkwriter looks very similar to the previous TI-2200 II but added solar cells. Production of the TI-2200 II was shifted to Thailand before it was replaced by the fancy TI-2200+.

The TI-2200 II Checkwriter sports 3 separate memories to store account balances. A password protects the privacy of the balances.

TI-2200-II_C0387_PCB.jpg (301614 Byte)Dismantling the TI-2200 II reveals no surprises, the printed circuit board (PCB) looks very similar to the original TI-2200. Interesting to notice that the PCB carries a "308 II" designator while the previous version was labeled "309T".

Don't miss the clones sold by Olivetti and Radio Shack.

A similar product was sold both from Canon with the Checkbook III.

The TI-2200 II is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated sales catalog CL-1233 dated 1994.
