Newtonsales is building a batch of battery trays, so there is a ray of hope
for you there. They come up from time to time on eBay and often as part of a
package.  Its probably better value for money to buy it as a package.

I see others have recommended Frank's services.

A Newton can still be of use without a battery.  I make one Newton work as a
NPDS server permanently plugged in to mains power without a battery

Thanks. I was incorrect, no data is being lost. I mistook the calibration
screen and card loading as a complete reboot. My notes and stored data are
in fact intact. Keep in mind that I'm a 1.2 user and this was all a bit new.

My battery rebuild did not take, which was evident from the condition of the
older battery that it would not work. This leaves the Newt rather powerless
to really be effective anyway, so the Newt will likely end up on my shelf as
a curiosity until I stumble upon a battery tray, or some enterprising
individual starts printing off battery trays from a 3D printer.
