TI-5050M Calculator
TI number: S00216

The TI-5050M was the first portable paper tape calculator marketed by TI. A thermal printhead was used. It was operated from batteries with a charger available.

The lack of a label with a serial number indicates this calculator probably was an engineering prototype model. It does not have a charger with it.
