Re: [NTLK] batteries and battery tray questions

Yes those batteries are fine. And nope it can't hurt the Newt if you
have the AC attached while replacing or just having those batteries
installed, provided you have a original battery tray that has not been
modified. In short if you don't have two contacts on the bottom of the
battery tray it is fine. Those two contacts tell the Newt it is a
rechargeable battery, and without them it assumes that they are alkaline
and not rechargeable.
