Default MiniPros with dead batteries

Looks like MiniPros are arriving for Christmas with dead batteries. Too much time on the warehouse shelves, maybe? The charger won't charge them.

Interestingly enough, the customer reviews said they are being told to remove the battery and try charging directly. I didn't think the included charger would connect to the battery itself.

Too bad about lithium powered products on the shelves for a long time. My GoPro remote control had the same issue. Few GoPro remotes are sold so they are often a year or more old, in the package, and the lithium battery is too dead to charge.

It looks like people are getting tested ones shipped as replacements from Segway. Hopefully you get yours soon.
