    if you wrap it in freezer bag and put it in the freezer fo about 2 days. Then recharge it it will have a new lease of life.

    Just bought one on Ebay.

    Bit uncomfortable coming from China but got great feedback.

    I've got a battery for the old laptop which is a bit iffy so I'll try this trick.

    I've put it in the freezer and will get it out again when we return from Newark.

    To answer Betty's point, I think it will be necessary to let it come up to room temp before attempting charging.
