Don't you mean Apple Newton eMate 300 PDA ?

I still have an extra battery holder for using standard rechargable AA's

Anyone want it ?

Sorry...ygor

Yes that is what I meant. Thanks. As long as I have your attention. Is there any way to transfer files from the apple newton emate 300 pda to a PC?

With a serial cable

And software. Use Google. I do not know of any

battery?

I looked at several of these at ebay and they all said "battery will not hold a charge but will work while plugged in." Does anyone have one of these and replaced the battery? I'm guessing this is probably because the batteries are old. Does anyone have some experience with these and battery issues? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Battery Issues

Very simply, rechargables wear out.
If you are interested, I found a hack that replaces the battery pack with a 4xAA battery holder. If you put rechargeable batteries in it, the emate's charge system will recharge them.

And I have an extra battery holder I will happily part with (for what I paid for it - just a few $'s)

Try this Google...

This is a straight Google Link, nothing snarky :)

The battery issue on the emate has been repeatedly hacked. I just believe the first one I posted in the first reply is the most elegant.
