Torch will not charge

can a battery crash?  My Torch has suddenly decided to not to charge with USB or wall charger.  I did run it down to red battery strength and it closed down in the end due to lack of power.  I wonder if this has damaged the battery. anyway is there a way  to get it back to life? Device  is less than 6 months old. Thanks

Re: Torch will not charge

charge for 15 min and remove battery and replace battery again

 

try it for 8 times or so and usually it will come back.
