Yes, this would work quite nicely with a USB-C port that has more than 
enough power to run and charge the MessagePad, and it would also 
transfer data to the modem port or serial port.

But with the knowledge that a malfunctioning power module on this port 
would instantly destroy the Newton, nobody was brave enough to develop 
such a thing... .

BTW: in the documentation, the value of the resistor that indicates 
external charging is wrong. Using it may also destroy the Newton... . 
Just saying.
