[NTLK] eMate Battery Pack Help

  All this talk about replacing eMate batteries caused me to pull out my
eMate and the rechargables I bought more than a year ago, and get on with
the project long on my to-do list. I followed Frank's excellent
instructions <http://www.pda-soft.de/emate_battery_pack.html>. The finished
product do not look perfect, but it was delivering 4.97v and the resistance
across the thermistor was 9.5 kiloOhms.
  But my eMate doesn't power up! :(  Perhaps it has been dead so long it
cannot be revived? Before I put more time and money into a battery pack, is
there something else I should do?

I rarely throw in anything on here, but you can mod your eMate with no cut
plastic required to accept any rechargeable cells. It cost $10.60 USD to
do, the only thing you have to? remove the old foam strip (you can retain
it for latter), it is much better than any of the "cell rebuilds" you see.
Contact me if you want more information.
