Google is selling a load of battery patents

The document includes five "featured" patents out of the 207. These include US Patent 6,320,354 — a "Method and apparatus for battery charging" — and US Patent 5,854,549 — a "Contact arrangement having an auxiliary contact" — among others.

According to Fortune, all of the patents were originally awarded to Motorola, which Google bought for $12.5 billion (£8.7 billion) in 2011. Google later sold Motorola to Lenovo for $2.5 billion.

The purchase of Motorola was, in part, driven by the large patent portfolio the company had and Google wanted. However, a court recently said that Google held Motorola's patents in bad faith.

Google ranked fifth for the most patents awarded in 2015, behind Samsung and LG. Apple and Microsoft came in 12th and 9th, respectively.
