Default Battery not recognized - is it dead? - 01-23-2011, 07:23 AM

I left my mini10v alone for about a month and when I came back to it, it shows that my 6 cell battery is not being recognized and the LED flashes red. I switched it with another mini10v and it wouldn't charge on the other one either. The other battery worked fine on both minis. Is there anything I can do to save the battery?

If I can't - does any1 know where I can get a cheap 6 cell battery for the mini 10v?

A month should not be a problem unless the battery was low to begin with. But if you let a Lithium-Ion battery drain too far, then one or more cells can go bad. Is this a Dell battery?

Yes, it's the battery that came with the mini. I'm not sure how much it was charged at the beginning of the month, but I could've sworn I fully charged it before I left.

I see this battery on Amazon - no idea how good it is.
