Hello Hillary
I'm sure that you've received many responses, but in my opinion, you need to get a new eMate. My reasoning is that if you are plugging your eMate into a power supply and it's not working, then it is beyond the batteries. The resistance across the thermistor has nothing to do with the eMate starting, unless you are shorting out the leads when you start it? eMates right now are cheap, and the people listing them on eBay have no idea of what they have, they are Green sellers (ha, ha) estate sellers or surplus sellers. Now is a great time to get an eMate, and do all the necessary to make it last for years.

  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.
