About 5 weeks ago, I took it from the holster - it was very hot and stopped working. I pulled the hot battery out, let it cool and it started OK again.
4 weeks ago I turned it off with about 70% charge on the battery. It would not turn on. Repeated removals of the battery, cleaning the terminals, no luck. Finally, about 3 hours later, I removed and replaced the battery one more time. Voila, it worked. And the battery was still at 70%.
Last night I turned it off, with about 25% battery I guess. This morning it would not switch on at all, until I started charging it, when it had zero charge in it.
No idea what is going on. Three different events. three different symptoms and outcomes. Maybe an internal short circuit?
Definitely get a new one.
