Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO RETENTION OF RECHARGEABLE DEVICES
(FR) AMELIORATIONS ASSOCIEES A LA RETENUE DE DISPOSITIFS RECHARGEABLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is disclosed a system and method for retaining portable rechargeable devices to recharging stations wherein one or other or both of the recharging station and the portable device are provided with connecting means adapted for temporary releasable connection of the two. This is particularly advantageous when used with recharging stations, which permit the device to be recharged in multiple places on the recharging station, providing a positive means of retaining the device. This is particularly advantageous if the recharging station is to be used in a mobile environment such as a car, or on a wall or ceiling.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de retenir des dispositifs portables rechargeables sur des stations de recharge, la station de recharge et/ou le dispositif portable comprenant un moyen de connexion conçu pour établir une connexion libérable temporaire entre ces derniers. Cette invention s'avère particulièrement avantageuse lorsqu'elle est mise en oeuvre avec des stations de recharge qui permettent de recharger le dispositif dans des emplacements multiples sur celles-ci, en fournissant un moyen positif de rétention pour celui-ci. L'invention s'avère particulièrement avantageuse si la station de recharge doit être utilisée dans un environnement mobile de type voiture, ou sur un mur ou un plafond.
