Recently, the OBC (On Board Charger) on our 2014 (Australian year) (probably actually a 2011-2012) Nissan Leaf failed. The AC plug will no longer charge. Good news is that DC still works.
We are in Australia, so the number of second hand OBC is rather rare. We tried to get a second hand OBC from overseas and we were informed that they would not send it to Australia because of the presence of a single lithium battery on it. Engineering wise, this seems a little bit strange to me.
1. Why would there be a lithium battery on an OBC?
2. Even if there is a lithium battery, it may only be used to power a very small part of the circuitry, which would generally be a coin battery.
Does anyone know whether there is actually a lithium battery on the OBC?
The OBC in question is part 296A0-3NA8A

Would appreciate any response to clarify the above. Thanks in advance.
