Posted Monday, November 29, 2020 07:08:52A car charger battery can last for many years.
However, in 2017, one of these batteries came loose.
After more than three years of looking for a replacement, the driver of the vehicle found the battery charger that had been lost in the driveway had broken down.
The driver, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the battery had been left unattended for years, but the owner had recently bought the car.
“The owner had a couple of new cars that they were taking apart to see if there was any damage and the battery went missing,” the driver said.
“We were just really sad that the battery that we had had the last year and a half was gone and was lost.”
The driver said the charger had never been in use and the owner was still unaware of what had happened.
“They were really upset that it had been stolen,” he said.
It was one of the few cases of a lithium battery pack failing in the car park.
A spokesman for the Queensland Government said it was investigating.
“It is a very sad situation for anyone who has had a lithium ion battery in their car,” he told news.com and SBS.
“Our priority is to find the vehicle and return it to its owner as soon as possible.”
If anyone has any information about the owner of the battery, we will seek to assist them in getting it back.
