Nope you can't do that. All this package does is allow you to change what the battery meter shows and makes it more accurate. Each type of battery works differently and by default the Newt will think it is always using alalakine batteries in the tray. This package allows you to tell it NOPE you are using Nimh, NiCad, etc.
You still need to charge them in a normal charger outside the Newt.

>> As others have already said, you certainly can. I have been for years. The only downside is the battery meter will be off. BUT you can fix that with Nick's softcharge. It is a little package that allow you to set what batteries are being used in your newton (NiCad, NiMh etc) and the battery bar will be much more accurate as a result. Here's more info on it http://www.stillnewt.org/library/_Software/_Other%20Newton%20Applications/_Batttery%20and%20Charging/Nick's%20SoftCharge%201.1%20%28NOS%202.1,%201998%29/readme.html but it should be on the various archives. If you can't find it, let me know and I can mail you a copy.
