The TI-2200 II Checkwriter looks very similiar 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 seperate memories to store account balances. A password protects the privacy of the balances.
Dismantling the TI-2200 II reveals no surprises, the printed circuit board (PCB) looks very similiar to the original TI-2200. Interesting to notice that the PCB carries a "308 II" designator while the previous version was labelled "309T".
Don't miss the clones sold by Olivetti and Radio Shack.
A similar product was sold both from Canon with the Checkbook III.
