If you want the Newton to charge the batteries (i.e. if you're planning on
rebuilding a pack), you should use  NiMH for eMates and 2x00 Newtons and
NiCd for all earlier Newton models. The Newton models' charge circuitry is
designed for charging these types, so ugly things might happen if you use
the wrong type.

If you want to charge the batteries externally, simply use the largest
capacity you can get.
