I'm sure we've all wasted precious seconds (and for some, minutes) figuring out which way a battery should be placed in gadgets.

Instead of distinguishing the positive and negative ends of each battery, it allows you to place it in any way you wish.

Being the generous multi-billion company it is, Microsoft will offer this patented system to its competitors. Stats for Interchangeable Battery Docks Trending: Older & Chilly
