Abstract:

An apparatus for allowing a supplying battery of an electronic device to be replaced with a replacement battery without interrupting voltage supplied to the electronic device. The apparatus comprises a housing configured in the form of an open pocket that has an interior wall that is open at one side to form a mouth and defines an interior region sized for receiving a battery. The mouth is sized to allow a battery to be manually inserted into and removed from the interior region. A plurality of extending electrically conductive members are attached to and extend from the housing to allow an auxiliary power source to apply a voltage in parallel with the supplying battery while the supplying battery is being removed from the interior region and a replacement battery is being inserted into the interior region.
