AA batteries on the eMate 300?

In preparation in hopefully trading the eMate for a Message Pad, I 
decided to replace its battery pack as a selling point. But instead of 
going and spending $24 on a new battery, I opted to buy some AA battery 
boxes instead. After much modification of its internals, I managed to 
get the two boxes inside and now I have a happy little eMate that can 
run on its batteries for longer than five minutes.

Has anyone else done this and what sort of success have you come across? 
I intend to throw some rechargeables in there, but is it safe to charge 
using the built-in charger? I am thinking of throwing some 2400 mAH 
batteries in there so its lifespan can be fairly decent.

As well, I also changed the screws from a torx to phillips in the 
foresight that I or someone else might want to change the batteries 
without having to look for the screwdriver itself.

Re: NewtonScript Tutorial 3 preview for the brave

Hello Matthias:

Please allow me to make a few recommendations as a technical communicator:

? *? Standardize your text and try to remain consistent as much as possible. Decide if you want to use
"Choose", "Select", etc, and stick with it. I personally prefer to use "Select" for commands involving
sub-menus and lists; I use "Click" for command buttons and hyperlinks.

? *? Use bold text for a command button name, list option,? or sub-menu option when it is being acted upon:

??? ? ?? ??? ??  "Click OK."

??? ??  ??  ??  ??  "Select File > Print."

??? ??  ??  ??  ??  "From the Employee list, select Senior Hydrologist."

? *? Capitalize the names of command buttons, headings, menus, tabs, etc. Don't capitalize the word "tab", however!

??????????????? "Select the Advanced tab"

??? ??  ??  ??  ??  "Select View > Zoom."

?? 
? *? Number each step in a procedure (see my example, below).

To create a new project:

?? 1.? From the tool bar, select Project > New Project.

Re: Tom Swift books

Tony,

Please add me to the list of people you are going to send these to.

As many others indicated, these were very early favorite readings when I was
younger.  I've currently got 20 or so of the actual books, and am constantly
looking to get the rest of them.

(Will one day complete my set of these, and the hardy boy/nancy drew stories
as well)

Dan.

emate battery rebuilds

My school has 15 emates that we have taken the battery pack out of and at Batteries Plus the guy takes out the
old batteries puts it back together with new rechargables. It is working great.

Re: AA batteries on the eMate 300?

If you have the Thermister close to the batteries then you can  
recharge them, but you will also want the Policell in place to add  
additional protection in case of an accidental short circuit.  This is  
advice given by others who know more than I do, and I always follow it.

Re: Battery rebuild

I've got orders for 2x00 battery rebuilds coming in right now to my
place in Orlando.

I'm using 2500 mAh NiMH cells in the replacement process.

I thought I was going to be able to crack the case, replace the cells,
bond the halves together and make it look like OEM, but the 2500 mAh
cells are about 0.7mm thicker diameter than the original cells, so I
have to figure out a way to accommodate the extra cell volume.

For those of you who want OEM looking packs, I can replace the older
cells with 1800 mAh NiMH cells, that fit perfectly, but you'll
probably want to have the extended run time with the larger cells.

Cost is $60 each, or $55 each for 3 or more. I'm including the cost of
the cells in the $60. You pay for shipping one way. I need to put this
on the wiki...shoot, I just checked, and it's already there.

BTW, anyone shipping batteries, be very careful to tape them up and
wrap them up so the contacts can't short out--even if you know they're
dead. Also, don't send them via air, just to be safe.

Essentially, any Postscript- and Localtalk-capable printer will do. I 
use a LaserJet 4LM.
