A settlement worth $12 million has been reached to settle claims that ASUS laptops are equipped with defective batteries.

The settlement benefits consumers who purchased an ASUS Rog Strix GL502VS or GL502VSK laptop between May 4, 2014 and Nov. 19, 2019.

Plaintiff Joseph Carlotti filed his ASUS class action lawsuit in May 2018, alleging that laptops manufactured by the company were equipped with a faulty battery that caused power problems and overheating issues.

Carlotti reportedly experienced the defect after purchasing his laptop for a two month trip abroad. During that time, he allegedly felt heat emanating from the laptop and experienced poor graphics. Even after repairs and replacement, Carlotti says he continued to experience the defect which rendered the laptops inoperable.

The ASUS class action lawsuit claimed that the defective battery results in several consequences such as battery draining even when the laptop is plugged in, performance issues while on low battery, and degradation of the battery.



In mid-2019, ASUS agreed to a $11.9 million settlement to resolve the claims against them. The company did not admit any wrongdoing by settling the ASUS class action lawsuit.

Under the settlement, Class Members can receive either a cash payment of up to $110 or an ASUS credit certificate worth up to $210.

The settlement also establishes an extended warranty for ASUS Rog Strix GL502VS laptops. More details regarding the extended warranty are available in the “Potential Award” section below.

In order to benefit from the settlement, Class Members need to file a valid Claim Form by April 3, 2020. The deadline for exclusion and objection is also April 3, 2020. The final approval hearing for the settlement is scheduled for April 30, 2020.

Who’s Eligible

Consumers who purchased an ASUS Rog Strix GL502VS or GL502VSK laptop between May 4, 2014 and Nov. 19, 2019.



Potential Award

Cash payment up to $110 or a credit certificate up to $210. Consumers who sent a complaint to ASUS before March 19, 2019 will automatically receive a credit certificate.

Extended Warranty for ASUS Rog Strix GL502VS laptops. Repairs under warranty will be available through three years after the laptop purchase date, 90 days after final approval of the settlement, or 180 days after a prior replacement of the internal power supply and/or power adapter (whichever is latest).

        I see what you’re up to. DO NOT POST YOUR SERIAL NUMBER HERE. Others will use it to file a false claim, & you will not be eligible for payment.

      Why are you wasting your time? The people that keep asking to be added, obviously don’t read any of the comments. You can reply to each and every one of them, and they still wouldn’t know. They just ask to be added, and keep on moving to the next thing. Real easy peasy for them.

      • jamie B April 3, 2020

        You would think after all the “add me” from them for months and years, well, who the hell knows how long they do this this and they never get a check; One would think they would figure it out. It might take them about 10 more years of this before they get it. They will get it eventually. Believe me, believe me…

        • jamie B April 3, 2020

          Oh yeah, add me too by the way so I can get a check. I have kids to feed.

    • Matt March 24, 2020

      Funny. I always wonder what kind of dimwit thinks someone goes through all the comments and just adds people to a bunch of class action lawsuits. But then, why should I wonder. We life in interesting times…and natural selection is apparently flawed.

    I don’t have this laptop model but had issues with the x555la. Seems to be an issue across the board. The battery never lasted and always had to keep it plugged in. Flicked when not plugged in. I would never purchase an Asus again.

  • ROG GL753VE February 19, 2020

    I have scoured the web all over reading complaints about ASUS having two major problems with all ROG computers. One the is the hinge cover coming apart. The second is the Battery problem. It isn’t just this ROG model, but all of them. 3 months after having my computer, it was having a battery issue, just shut down and said, no battery. I plugged it in, different ways, and eventually, something triggered to get it to say I had a battery.. Right now, my computer says, plugged in, %255 charge available. I am engineer, and there is a major designed flaw in Asus battery system, and their hinges. A class action suit doesn’t fix the problem, because the lawyers get all the money, and your computer is still F-ed up. It is more like filing a complaint with the federal gov.. I believe contacting the FTC will have to be the answer because these lawyers will never get your money back for a defective product.

  • Tori Walker February 12, 2020

    What about the ASUS Rog GL503VD laptops? I have the same battery problem and after having it for only 2.5 years the keyboard no longer works after a mandatory update! ASUS CS told me it’s not their problem!!

    You need a serial number to file a claim.
    That would count as proof of purchase, no?
    Then, proof of purchase is required.

    • Nicole January 20, 2020

      No. That doesn’t prove you purchased it lmao. If you actually qualify, you’ll have the serial number on your laptop.

      • Sara January 24, 2020

        No- I bought this gaming laptop for my son and it was overheating. We took it on vacation with us and it had all kinds of problems. We ended up tossing it after 6 months of taking it to local computer repair. Wasn’t worth it to spend what was needed to make it decent. So I no longer have the darn serial number.

      • MeMe March 6, 2020

        Nicole,
        It said no proof of purchase necessary.
        In the next breath, it asks for the serial number.
        That is a form of a proof of purchase, as in ownership.
        No proof needs to mean, no proof, no nothing.
        Hope this was more clear?
