Microsoft Surface Pen With Rechargeable Battery? This Sounds Good

Microsoft Surface Pen is doing a commendable job when it comes to battery life. The battery life will be further improved with a rechargeable battery

Microsoft Surface Pen is already doing a great job when it comes to battery life. Right now, it sports a non-rechargeable battery the company claims will last for a year. Now the buzz is that Microsoft has filed a patent application which reveals that the company is working on a rechargeable battery for the Surface Pen.

Microsoft Surface Pen users still do not have any complaints when it comes to the battery life of this stylus. In fact, it is one of the best styli till date. Changing battery once in a year is no pain, but having a rechargeable battery would just add another feather to Microsoft’s cap.

Patently Mobile in its report has published the text from the patent application filed by Microsoft for a rechargeable Surface Pen battery. It reads,

“As a stylus may be easily misplaced due to the typical size and shape of the stylus (e.g., a thin, rod-like shape with at least one tapered end), the stylus charger may take the form of a dock that holds the stylus in a particular location during charging and/or while the stylus is not being used. In the examples illustrated below, the stylus includes at least one terminal of the charging circuit that is formed from a deposit of ferromagnetic material on an exterior of the stylus body. Including a magnetically-attractable element that also serves as a charging terminal enables the terminal to be aligned to a charging contact of the dock and secured to the dock against gravitational pull and other forces via magnetic attraction to a permanent magnet of the dock.”

This patent for a rechargeable battery for Microsoft Surface Pen was filed in June 2014. There is no statement given by Microsoft yet. So no one knows when this new Surface Pen will come to the market. Chances are, Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 will continue to have the stylus with non-rechargeable battery. This new rechargeable Microsoft Surface Pen may be introduced with the next Windows 10 convertible from the brand.
