I wouldn't recommend it; the MP130 rechargeable packs from Apple were
NiCD, not NiMH. I doubt the charging characteristics are the same at all.

I'd either use NiCDs if you really want to charge IN the Newton (you have
to rig something to press the sensor button down so it knows you have
NiCDs in there) or charge externally.
