I wouldn't. I've blown up hardware using those damn things. Too easy to
mis-set or BUMP the switches that control voltage or polarity and ZAP,
fried gadget.

Get the Apple ones.

NewtonOz (in the Newton Mall on This Old Newt, http://members. may have them, and I KNOW Small Dog Electronics
( has 9 in stock for $39 each, brand new (I was just
there buying a bunch of eMate styluses; they have THOUSANDS, and sell a
set of 24 (yes TWENTY FOUR) multicolored ones for $7 and they also sell
six eMate standard (green?) ones for $9.00). Just search for Newton (for
the charger) or eMate (for the styluses). Or search for MessagePad.
They have quite a bit of Newton goodies in stock at the moment, I see.
Especially stylues. Thousand and thousands and thousands of 'em!
