During notebook system disassembly, when opening the back door, the motherboard is still connected
to the battery which is easy to cause short circuits when replacing modules or memory SODIMM, e.g.
when screws drop or the screwdriver touches the motherboard components accidentally; the
unexpected short circuits may introduce component damage or other unexpected issues after
assembling the system back, and it’s hard to screen out these defects by a simple boot test at the
service site. This invention is to design a new type of connector with springs to ensure the battery is
disconnected automatically from the motherboard when the D‐cover is removed.
