Yes, I think the chargers are based on the Qi standard if that is what the iPhone uses. I know Jake Bordens and maybe some others had done some work mapping out how the charging circuits work on the Newton, I wonder if there is enough room inside the case to put a coil directly inside the back? Most of these chargers are 5v circuits, and the Newton’s is 7v, so again I’m not sure if this would work.

Creating a special battery pack might work ok but I think I would have to perhaps use smaller cells to make room for the chip and the coil, ad it would have to be a smaller coil. Then I don’t know much about how charging circuitry works so I am at a loss of how to direct the electricity to the right place.

But if I had a little more info it might be a cool project for early next year. If I knew the best way to go about it I certainly would.
