The battery of my Go 500 never was great, but now it is completely dead after I didn't use it for a couple of months. I tried charging through the USB and the cradle, different cables, different adapters, waited for hours, but it's completely dead.
Did anyone try replacement kits like these:

Any good advice?

    Manu have gotten batteries/tools from that company but make sure you know what the shipping charges would be to your country.

    Wow! The next day my Go 500 woke up again after another try to switch it on (while it had been disconnected from power all night!). It showed an empty battery and after connecting it fully charged. Hopefully the quality of the battery is good enough to start using it again.
