[NTLK] Newton Repair Question

Under a heavy load (downloading a webpage in Courier to CompactFlash 
with a Wi-Fi card), my MP2100 will draw about 5V, 0.3A from the 
batteries according to NewtTest. Under a more normal load, my Newton 
usually draws closer to 0.08A. I know that the power adapter can supply 
about 7V DC, and I would assume that it would draw about the same amount 
of current from either power source.
