We go through several of these a year.
We have several manlifts, all electric and the men are instructed to make sure they are plugged in every night when they leave the job sites, we only use #12 cords for the chargers and they seem to walk off on a regular basis.
We have tried marking them, putting tags on them, wire tying them to the lifts, and even ordering them in custom fluorescent colors, nothing seems to work to prevent them being stolen or "borrowed".

We used to have problems with the lifts being used by others if we weren't on site and then finding the batteries dead when we needed it, so we installed hidden switches, taking the keys wasn't good enough as some of the contractors just carried their own keys as most are interchangeable.
