Yeah, battery going bad and not charging can happen. I'm a little surprised that both of our 9900's died, literally won't power on anymore and not because of the battery.
He got his over a month after me and even had to wait due to low inventory, which I would think means they were manufactured a little while apart.
My replacement has been doing fine just as my old one was, right up until the very moment it died in my hands.
I guess every now and again you get your turn with the defect (I know all about that, I used to own a computer store) I've just never had a seemingly pure hardware issue (or one incredibly nasty software bug that only I somehow seemed to trigger) with any of my BB's to date.
Though if you're familiar with my wacky PB issues, that rebuffs my thoughts that somehow there's a build quality issue starting to show. I hope not
