Abstract

Consumer products which utilize removable batteries require some type of battery door to facilitate access. A study of the battery doors of many products found few good solutions. A well designed battery door should retain the battery during drop, have a positive snapping feature to lock it in place, should remain attached to the main housing during battery installation without becoming clumsy, should add only one part to the product and should not add additional exterior features to the product.
