I bought a new cell phone battery from Nokia, and when it arrived the phone wouldn't boot. I just multimetered it at 2.68 volts.
Should I just send it right back as a fire hazard?
Edit: It is a Nokia BP-6MT, and appears to be an unprotected cell with all the control electronics in the phone handset. Probably a standard prismatic li-co cell inside, but that's a SWAG.
