    Will a 957 charge if the battery has gone bad over the years? Also is there anyway to get it charging if it won't when placed in it's dock?

    Good questions, a quick search shows that batteries are available for the 957 if you need one. They're in the low to mid 20s in price.

    Thanks for the reply! I did see the replacement batteries. However after trying to get the device to work all day I dropped it in the dock, after giving up on it. Somehow after sitting in a box for probably 13 years it magically started up with a full charge, that it is actually holding.

    Well, it sounds like the temperature was stable enough not to cause major degradation, and since it was new, probably never cycled for more than a test, sounds like it all worked out on the end.
