Abstract

Disclosed is a user-activated device which provides a simple method of turning a portable electronic device on and off without active controls, thereby also serving as a battery life enhancer. This device also eliminates the need for a user activated switch and eliminates the inherent reliability problems with user activated controls due to cycling, dust and water intrusion, or contamination.
