If only there was a power over ethernet card that was compatible with the Newton. Then with the proper setup you could have your Newton powered off of the same line you get your connectivity from. Chances of that working though are pretty much zero, though it is nice to dream, and longer lasting batteries fill the short term goal.

By creating a simple circuit that splits the power out of PoE and runs
through a transformer, you could do this.

You would have to step the power down, and that's basically it other
than some fancy wiring and awesomeness.
