  • Patent number: 11561628
    Abstract: The disclosed technology provides for a device and method related to powering an electronic stylus with a removable, integrated battery that acts as a structural segment and external casing along the long axis of the stylus body. The integrated battery incorporates interlocking features, which removes the need for an external tube around a battery cell. As a result, the electronic stylus has one structural component performing multiple functions (e.g., providing power, functioning as the stylus casing), which achieves a more lightweight and compact electronic stylus. The placement of the battery along the long axis can vary to provide comfortable weight distribution for writing, which can involve an interlocking interface at one end of the battery or at both ends of the battery (e.g., to interlock with one or both ends of the electronic stylus).

  • Patent number: 11506350
    Abstract: The present invention provides an outdoor lighting lamp comprising a ground inserted base including an assembly opening and a ground nail, and a lighting module including a first shell, a light projection gap, a light emitting component, and a solar panel connected with the light emitting component. The light generated by electrifying the light emitting component is only projected by the light projection gap. One end of the first shell is mounted at the assembly opening, and the first shell is forced to rotate relative to the ground inserted base based on an axis of the ground nail to be a rotation axis. The solar panel is arranged at one end of the first shell where is in an opposite direction of the ground inserted base and not in horizontal. The solar panel adjusts a light receiving position by rotating the first shell relative to the ground inserted base.

  • Patent number: 11428375
    Abstract: A solar street lamp includes a connecting base configured with a mounting port for mounting the solar street lamp on top of a lamp post. A bottom plate has a rear portion mounted on top of the connecting base, the bottom plate has a lower surface upon which is mounted, in a forward portion of the bottom plate, a plurality of light-emitting modules. A solar panel is supported above the bottom plate and separated from the bottom plate by a distance of a wiring gap space, as meaning approximately a minimal gap needed to permit wiring for interconnections of components on the solar street lamp. A battery stores energy received from the solar panel, and a power supply provides power from the battery to the light-emitting modules. The battery and power supply are mounted below the bottom plate, inside a mounting chamber formed in the connecting base.
