I should have known better!!!

Bought a Polaroid Cube Act II from a US company on Amazon.com
Waited for it to fly over and when it did finally arrive today I discovered that it would not take a charge.
Curiosity got to me so as return would have not been easy, I took it apart.
What did I find?
I found that the two Fuji 240mAh batteries shoehorned Ito this thing had been left discharged so long they had died.
As the picture shows, across two packs wired in parallel I get a total of .3 volts.
These packs are more dead than King Tut.
No more old stock electronics for me!!!

Yeah anything with Lipo power does not age well sitting on shelves.

The nice thing is now that its already apart you can hardwire it into something.:)
