To put it simply,
To recharge the batteries with the "Battery Tray", it must be modified (addition of the temperature component, and addition/modification of the metal parts of the Battery Tray)
In fact, it comes down to transforming the Battery Tray into the original Newton Battery pack in a way.

It's clearer?
