Firm sues Samsung over basic battery tech, could have far-reaching impact


  • A patent licensing firm is suing Samsung over a commonly used battery algorithm.
  • The algorithm helps accurate predict remaining battery life.
  • Other companies use similar algorithms and could be the firm’s next targets.

A patent licensing firm has sued Samsung over basic battery technology in a case that could have far-reaching implications for the entire industry.

K.Mizra is a firm that licenses “high value, high quality patents with a global reach” from the likes of IBM, Sharp, and various research organizations and then sues any company it thinks may be infringing those patents. Samsung is its latest target, with K.Mizra filing a lawsuit on May 20, 2022, claiming the South Korean company’s battery life prediction algorithm violates one of the patents in its portfolio (h/t Android Central).
