    Looking into stack charging. Could be the solution.

    And this is why you should never let a li-on battery fully depleat.

    Luckily when the battery hits "0%" it's not really at zero, there is a cut out switch to try prevent the battery for being seriously damaged or possibly explode. Buuut if you leave the battery for an extended period of time at 0% the battery becomes unstable and dies. (not able to charge anymore)

    Purchasing a new battery would be the best option

    I struggled through jump charging a PlayBook for about a week before "giving up". I bought a cheap PlayBook rapid charger on amazon (the one with the three magnetic contacts), plugged it in and the PlayBook was back to life in about an hour.

    Still kicking myself for wasting so much time when the fix was under $10.
