Re: battery issue. this was solve a long time ago but requires a bit  
of hacking away plastic.
See <http://planetstephanie.net/hi-tech-fun/newton/emate-hacks/>
I assisted a list member with one of these.  The main difficulty aside  
from the enlarging of the battery area is attaching the temperature  
switch.  I believe Stephanie didn't use it.
Note she also lists source for tray.
