We know a lot of innovative calculators manufactured by Toshiba. This one is just boring - like its predecessors LC-842, LC-845 and LC-8000! It uses the electronics of the neat LC-825 again but uses a cheap housing with two heavy AA-sized batteries. In contrast to the LC-827 you got the sliding ON/OFF switch back again.

The battery operated HB-102 and solar-cell powered HB-103 are from much higher interest in the history of calculators.
