    If you battery is three or more years old, which I assume it probably would be, then don't overlook the obvious possibly that it is simply knackered.

    Lithium Ion type batteries have a finite lifespan whether they are used or not. Mistreating them (eg. letting them get hot, letting them deep discharge, impacts) will accelerate their decay.

    If the battery is showing any signs of swelling then dispose of it immediately at a suitable recycling point.

    Don't continue trying to use a knackered battery. They are a genuine fire hazard, as the many Internet videos will attest.

    Unfortunately, a replacement battery will likely have been manufactured some years ago for the Bold, so a 'new' one will already have lost some capacity that it had from manufacture. Still, it won't have been used so still should work for a while.
