Smartphone owners experience the odd occasion when the fuel cell must be removed from their handsets, but the designers of the Tilt Battery point out that this seemingly simple task can end up resulting in a bit of confusion. With some batteries even manufactured as squared shapes, one confronts the challenge of choosing the single correct way to replace it out of a possible eight orientations.

To narrow it down to one method of insertion, Ji Hye Park suggests manufacturing the the powerful mobile phone part with one angled side. The compartment would of course match this asymmetry, and only accept the slotting in of the Tilt Battery if the contours of the solid and void components align. The process then becomes quick and intuitive and reduces the possibility of damaging your device.
