  • Patent number: 8804326
    Abstract: An example terminal device includes a housing, and a first terminal (e.g., a charging terminal). The housing is generally plate-shaped and includes an engagement hole formed therein. The first terminal is provided on a surface (e.g., a bottom surface) of the housing on which the engagement hole is formed. A stand, which is a support device, includes a support member, a second terminal (e.g., a charging terminal), and guide members which are rotating members. The second terminal can be connected to the first terminal of the terminal device. The support member supports a predetermined surface (e.g., a back surface) of the housing when the first terminal and the second terminal are connected to each other. Each of the guide members can rotate in a predetermined direction and is provided at such a position that it is received into the engagement hole when the first terminal and the second terminal are connected to each other.

  • Publication number: 20140141652
    Abstract: A non-limiting example electronic device includes a battery accommodating portion in which a battery unit is accommodated. A male connector is provided on wires drawn-out from a main unit of the battery unit, and the male connector is inserted (connected) to a female connector which is fixed on a circuit board provided within a housing, and a battery lid is attached to the housing. The battery lid is provided with a projection on a surface which is rendered as an inner surface side when the battery lid is attached, and the projection prevents a connection state of the male connector and the female connector from being disconnected. That is, the projection restrains a movement of the male connector in a direction that the male connector comes out.
