This calculator is only 3 1/2 by 2 1/8 inches when closed. I researched before I bought it. I wanted a small, basic calculator to just sit on my desk and await my commands.
It has the percent, square root, +/-, and memory keys. It has two way power. It sits flat when open. There is no tension in the hinge so it will not hold itself in a bent position. I have no trouble holding it in one hand when I use it. It snaps closed firmly.
It’s a great little calculator. It will fit in any pocket I can think of and it’s allways ready. Price is right too.

Keep your hands off my calculator
By Lexi Genoa
We’re professional farmers and have to continually calculate on the go. Whether it is calculating water consumption, chemical application rates, or profit margins on machinery, animals, or grain markets as well as shipping costs, all of our people carry this little jewel in their pockets to be whipped out in a flash. They are like having another hand they are so handy to have. They’ve lived through rain, irrigation sprinklers, heat, sweat, dirt, and unmentionable other adventures and still last three to five years. Long enough the finish is scratched and worn down to the under-plastic. They fit in the shirt pocket easily and yet a blunt finger doesn’t hit two or more keys at a time. These are perfect. I just ordered 10 because we need backups. The thing that usually goes wrong with them is they get borrowed and don’t find their way home. Occasionally they are dropped from high places or had the fatal squeeze put on them. One actually worked for quite a while with a cracked screen….
Don’t pass this little jewel up.

Close to Perfection
By J Keistler
I still have my TI Datamath that my parents bought for me in college, in 1973. It cost nearly $150, and does the basic four functions. The LED display ate so much power it that it only has a charger and built-in batteries.
These little Casio calculators are a perfect companion for someone who needs ultra portability in calculation. Do others remember the credit card sized calculators, such as the Canon Flash Card in the 80′s? Trouble was/is, they are too delicate, being susceptible to breakage even in a suit coat pocket. These little Casio calcs use a folding display so that the vulnerable parts are protected when it is closed. Those shopping on here will see various models according to their extra functions; Canon, etc. make similar calculators.
I have a silver-finish Dual Leaf that has been pulled in and out of pockets so much that the silver finish has actually worn off the edges. Still works perfectly. I recently came across an all-black one and picked it up for a backup. Another advantage of the Dual Leaf over some of these ultramini calcs is that it does have a battery backup for the excellent solar cell. So many of these very inexpensive calcs only have solar, and I have been in meetings in rooms that don’t have sufficient light to power them.
The display on the Dual Leaf is very large, in fact larger than my desk calculator. This can also be an advantage to those of us with older eyes!
I see a negative review on here from someone complaining that once opened, the calculator freely articulates. In other words, one can’t expect the display/lid to hold at any angle other than fully open. I prefer it as it is. If I open the calc and place it on the surface beside me, the display can be easily read from the flat surface. Better yet, the current design allows the user to open and operate the calculator with one hand–I do it routinely.
I use an HP 12C for more complex calculating, but this little Dual Leaf is perfect for one needing pocketability combined with durability. Highly Recommended.
