Cellular battery drain

    I got two SX56 in 2005. One I was playing with but never unlocked, the other
    I never used until recently. It refused to charge so I replaced the battery.
    After working for a few days it drained again and refused to recharge again.
    I can't find any obvious contact to cause the leak. Any experience
    that might be helpful?

    The usual stated useful lifetime of lithum-ion batteries is about 3 years,
    plus or minus, whether used or not. Poor charging, usage, or storage
    patterns can reduce that even more.

    A battery that old likely has developed high internal resistance, such
    that the capacity to deliver power is markedly reduced regardless of the
    initial voltage after charging.
