  • Publication number: 20120106042
    Abstract: A terminal device 7 includes a housing 50, and a first terminal (charging terminal). The housing 50 is generally plate-shaped and includes an engagement hole formed therein. The first terminal is provided on a surface (bottom surface) of the housing 50 on which the engagement hole is formed. A stand 210, which is a support device, includes a support member 211, a second terminal (charging terminal) 212, and guide members 213a and 213b which are rotating members. The second terminal 212 can be connected to a terminal of the terminal device 7. The support member 211 supports a predetermined surface (back surface) of the housing 50 when the first terminal and the second terminal 212 are connected to each other. Each of the guide members 213a and 213b can rotate in a predetermined direction and is provided at such a position that it is inserted into the engagement hole when the first terminal and the second terminal 212 are connected to each other.
