Canon Checkbook started the idea of an Account Manager already in
1982 and outdated the Texas Instruments TI-2200
by a few weeks. Casio entered the market of Checkbook calculators in 1983 with
the CB-100 and increased the numbers of memories from three to five. A
less powerful version with only two memories was sold as CB-80.
Casio fitted the CB-100 Checkbook calculator with a brown sleeve holding a golden pen and space for a maximum of five credit/debit cards.
The CB-100 Checkbook calculator is powered by a single 3V Lithium battery.
Dismantling this CB-100 Checkbook calculator manufactured in 1985 in Japan reveals an interesting construction centered around a NEC uPD1826G single-chip calculator circuit with Mask-ROM Version -009.

Don't miss the Corvus CheckMaster introduced by Mostek already in 1975. This rare product retains the balance of your memory even when shut off but uses power-hungry electronics.
