  • Patent number: 11460303
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus includes a communication unit configured to perform wireless communication, a storage, a first determiner, and an indoor specifying unit. The storage stores therein, as registered identification information, identification information whose contents are changeable, the identification information being allocated to a first communication device with which the communication unit is capable of performing wireless communication. The first determiner determines whether received identification information agrees with the registered identification information, the received identification information being the identification information received by the communication unit from a second communication device and allocated to the second communication device. The indoor specifying unit performs indoor specification to specify that a user having the electronic apparatus is indoors, based on a first result of determination by the first determiner.

  • Publication number: 20220278432
    Abstract: A secondary battery includes an electrode assembly including first and second electrodes, an outer body having an opening and housing the electrode assembly, a conductive sealing plate sealing the opening, and a deformable member. The sealing plate has a first through-hole. The deformable member seals the first through-hole. When the opening of the outer body faces upward, a second electrode connecting member electrically connected to the second electrode is above the deformable member. A conductive conducting member is disposed between the second electrode connecting member and the deformable member. The diameter of the conducting member is larger than the diameter of the first through-hole. When the pressure inside the outer body becomes equal to or higher than a predetermined value, the deformable member is deformed and brings the conducting member into contact with the second electrode connecting member and electrically connects the sealing plate and the second electrode connecting member.

  • Patent number: 11402993
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first sensor for detecting a gesture that does not come into contact with the electronic device, a second sensor for detecting a touch that comes into contact with the electronic device, and a controller. The controller increases the size of an icon, displayed on a display, when a gesture is detected by the first sensor. The controller increases the size of the icon in accordance with the distance to the position where the gesture detected by the first sensor is performed. The controller decreases the size of the icon when a touch is detected by the second sensor, regardless of the distance to the position where the gesture detected by the first sensor is performed.

  • Patent number: 10756324
    Abstract: The positive electrode substrate exposed portions or the negative electrode substrate exposed portions, or both, of an electrode assembly is split into two groups, and therebetween is disposed an intermediate member made of a resin material and holding one or more connecting conductive members. Collector members for the substrate exposed portions split into two groups is electrically joined by a resistance welding method to the substrate exposed portions split into two groups, together with the connecting conductive member(s) of the intermediate member. The resin material portion of the intermediate member protrudes, in the extension direction of the substrate exposed portions split into two groups, beyond the ends of the substrate exposed portions split into two groups and the ends of the collector member to a prismatic outer can.
