Scott my brother it was YOU! who out bid me on that auction....
Ah that's good it was someone i knew - if you had told me I would have not
bid on it and you might have gotten it even cheaper... Argh... sorry :^( Bad
Man I wanted that Newton Messaging Card :-(

Frank hasn't done a write up on that one yet and I'm not sure if he will
(FRANK paging Dr. Frank!!!)
If you were careful enough to take it apart it is possible to recell it with
NiCD cells.
I have one taken apart already but no time to do this and not willing to
spend the cash on NiCD's at this time.....

The rechargeable packs are all black except for the contacts.
The Battery Cage is black with two metal plats that lock over the batteries
after they are installed.
You should be able to find some hopefully on eBay but I've not seen any

Also if you plan to recell get tabbed NiCD AAA batteries...
