I'm sure we've all wasted precious seconds (and for some, minutes) figuring out which way a battery should be placed in gadgets. Thanks to the Microsoft 'Instaload' system, we'll be able to do away with such a time consuming task. Instead of distinguishing the positive and negative ends of each battery, it allows you to place it in any way you wish.

A simple concept, the Microsoft 'Instaload' system equips each end of the battery docks with both positive and negative terminals. Being the generous multi-billion company it is, Microsoft will offer this patented system to its competitors.
