Li-ion battery makers accused of price-fixing in lawsuit

Hell hath no fury like a mobile-phone owner scorned.

In this case, LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony are among lithium-ion battery makers that have been subject to at least 10 class-action lawsuits alleging that the manufacturers engaged in price-fixing practices to keep prices up, the New Jersey Law Journal reports.

The group of companies subject to the lawsuit control as much as 90 percent of the cells in items such as mobile phones, cameras and laptop computers. Many of the claims were filed in California and New Jersey, where many of the Asia-based companies have US domestic divisions.
