[NTLK] AA Battery Tray Issues

Hello Newtonians,
My Newton MP 2100 rechageable pack is damn near on its last legs (the POS drains in about half an hour of lighted screen use, three faxes, or one good game of Sub Hunt), so I decided to try using an AA battery tray.
When I place the AA battery tray (with charged batteries) in my Newton MP 2100, it VERY briefly looks as if it will boot up, and then it dies. What gives? I've tried this with two different sets of newly-charged AA batteries.
Also, does my AA battery tray need to have some kind of metal contacts on its underside, as the rechargeable pack has?
