   Nope. There are about ten million other AC adapter models out there...

Sorry, couldn't resist. Amazing that my wife has been able to withstand this
kind of nitpicking since we were sixteen...

That being said: There are two Newton AC adapters out there. One is 7.5
Volt, 1.2 Amps, 9 Watt, model number H0165. This one used to be sold with
the MessagePad 2000, 2100 and eMate, and it works fine with all Newton
models ever built. Its predecessor is rated 7.0 Volt, 0.5 Amps, 3.5 Watt.
Off the top of my head I do not recall the model number, and unfortunately I
don't have one at the moment. An AC adapter, that is. Not a head.
Said predecessor will also work with all Newton models, but it will take
longer to charge their batteries. I'm inclined to think that that model
might not be able to charge eMate & 2x00 batteries to full capacity since it
is lacking half a Volt, but so far I've never found the time to verify this.

Never use a third party AC adapter for a Newton or an eMate. Never ever.
Chances are almost 100% you'll fry your little green friend within a couple
of milliseconds.
