If you bought a cell phone, tablet, laptop or similar product that used a lithium ion battery from 2000-2011, you might be owed some cash.

A group of battery makers said they would pay a $45 million settlement, which would end a lawsuit claiming that the manufacturers would fix the price of the batteries for more than ten years.

Here’s how you qualify:

  • You live in the United States
  • You bought a device that uses lithium ion batteries and/or you bought replacement batteries
  • You did the above actions between 2000-2011

Items on the list include:

  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Cell Phones
  • Cordless Power Tools
  • Cameras

The amount of money you may get in a return is directly linked to how many of those products you purchased.

All claims must be filed by November 29.
