  • Patent number: 10374449
    Abstract: A smart electronic system is disclosed. The system can analyze any input voltage to determine whether the input voltage is sufficient to charge the battery of an electronic device and/or to operate the electronic device. If not, the cable is capable of transforming the input voltage to a voltage sufficient to charge and/or operate. The electronic device may be incorporated into the housing of the smart electronic system, and can be any known mobile devices.

  • Patent number: 10245879
    Abstract: The invention relates to the field of manual applicators, and in particular a manual applicator for applying a material on a substrate such as a sheet of paper. The manual applicator comprises a housing, an applicator endpiece projecting beyond a front opening of the housing, and a C-shaped handle. In a first section plane and in at least one section plane different from the first section plane and not parallel with the first section plane, the housing presents the same external outline adapted to be pressed into an internal outline of the handle, thereby enabling the handle to be fastened in a first orientation and alternatively in at least one second orientation different from the first orientation, the handle being oriented in the first section plane in the first orientation and in the second section plane in the second orientation. The first and second section planes are substantially in alignment with a longitudinal axis of the housing.

  • Patent number: 10228777
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to the field of manual devices for interacting with capacitive screens, and more particularly to a manual device with an open first end suitable for receiving a rear end of a writing instrument in a longitudinal direction, and a second end that is opposite from the first end in the longitudinal direction and that is provided with an electrically-conductive pad. Between the first and second ends, the manual device comprises an external portion made of elastomer and an internal structure that is electrically conductive, said internal structure forming an electrical connection between said pad and at least one conductive surface of the internal structure passing through an opening to be exposed on a grip surface of said external portion.

  • Patent number: 10215409
    Abstract: A gas lighter valve assembly that can be fitted easily and tightly into a gas lighter body or a well as a free-floating entity not fixed to the gas lighter body or well. The valve assemblies integration as a free floating entity within the lighter body or well avoids the necessity of an interference fit. To avoid the necessity of an interference fit, valve assembly positioning and stability is achieved by the use of an o-ring which is compressed by downward force exerted by a pressing cover upon a bushing or directly upon the o-ring. By eliminating the stress and friction typically caused by an interference fit, the lighter body and reservoir can be made from a variety of materials including non-crystalline resins.
