I believe that there is a sensor on the Newton's rechargable NiMH pack
that tells the Newton that it is a NiMH pack. Only on receiving that
signal will the Newton attempt to charge the battery.

If you use the AA holder, the Newton does not charge as it will be
considered non-chargeable disposable batteries.
