Perfectly. I have been using them with great success in my MP2Ks for
a year now instead of the rechargable pack. Alkalines are also good

No need. The standard battery tray does not allow charging of the
installed batteries.
If fact it's a good idea to plug in the Newt before changing the
batteries in the tray, that way the Newt thinks nothing has happened.
