    This battery was totally dead when I found my Phantom after a 5 hour search in a corn field.

    This is all the battery does when connected to the charger.

    I have 4 other batteries and they charge fine so I know the charger is good.

    Is this what happens if you let a LiPo drain down to 0%?

    I believe I've seen a few posts from people who've claimed they've revived their totally depleted Lipo's by connecting them to a better charger and then charging them at a really low rate (like at .5A) or less.

    Obviously buying a new charger will cost more than a replacement battery, but still might be worth a shot if you're hooked on this hobby, as having a good charger comes in handy.
