Last year, Unifi Scientific Batteries (USB) sued a number of companies in the Eastern District of Texas for infringement of its U.S. Patent No. 6,791,298 that claims a battery charger.  Among those sued by USB, whose principal place of business is in Longview Texas, are Amazon, RIM, HTC, Samsung, Sony and Texas Instruments.  The accused products include the Kindle Fire and Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus.

Last month Texas Instruments also requested inter partes review of the ‘298 patent (see IPR 2013-00213), and on Thursday Samsung filed its own inter partes review request against the ‘298 patent (see inter partes review Request Nos. (8)).
