• EEVblog #98 – Microsoft InstaLoad Battery Technology – Patent Busting Time?

    Microsoft’s new Instaload battery technology allows batteries to be inserted into a product either way around.
    Is it one of those brilliant “why didn’t anyone think of that before” moments, or just another silly patent on a really obvious idea?
    Is it workable in practice?
    Can YOU bust the patent by finding prior art before 2006?
