OAKLAND, Calif. – Did you buy a laptop, smartphone or tablet between 2000 to 2011?
Most of you did…and you may be eligible for some payback from battery companies for price fixing.
A nearly $45 million legal settlement will be doled out early next year from the Lithium-Ion Batteries Antitrust Litigation Lawsuit. The class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of buyers of lithium-ion cylindrical batteries that are in other devices, like laptops, power tools, camcorders and tablets.
LG Chem, Hitachi Maxell and NEC Corporation were the defendants in the case.
