U.S. residents may be eligible to receive compensation if they purchased any product containing a lithium-ion cylindrical battery manufactured by one of the defendants between January 1, 2000 and May 31, 2011.

To submit a claim, you need to file online by November 29, 2017. The amount of the payment will not be known until all claims are received and the court approves the final settlement. No proof of purchase is required.
