  • Patent number: 10523057
    Abstract: The present application provides a wireless charging module and a modularized sensing device therewith. A first charging unit is disposed around the inside of the wireless charging module for wirelessly charging a sensing module. Without introducing a transmission line as an electricity transmitting medium, the sensing module can be directly disposed inside and charged by the wireless charging module, which improves flexibility of implementation. Further, since the first charging unit is configured to surround the inside of the wireless charging module shaped as a bowl structure, the sensing module can be simply disposed into the bowl structure and wirelessly charged by the surrounding first charging units, which saves the inconvenience of setting the sensing module to a specific location or area for stable wireless charging and increases effective charging angles.

    Abstract: A clip cover for a C-type light string is an auxiliary accessory exclusively used for a C-type light string, and mainly includes a wire cover constituted by first front, rear covers, a lamp cover constituted by second front, rear covers and a buddle cover. Electric wire segments at the two sides of one C-type lamp of the light string are clipped inside the wire cover by engaging the first front cover with the first rear cover. Thereafter, the electric wire is pulled downward from the wire cover a certain length, allowing the C-type lamp to be hung perpendicularly below the wire cover; the lamp socket of the C-type lamp together with a small section of bent electric wire is further clipped inside the lamp cover through the second front, rear covers of the lamp cover; and the bundle cover is finally put around the lamp cover tightly.
