Welcome to, my name is Dustin.

If it wont retain a charge, you have one of two issues. You either need a new charger, or you need a new battery, or maybe even both.

Especially if you havent replaced the battery in 6 Years!! Its surprising it lasted this long.

You can get a charger here

And you can get a new battery kit here

And heres how to replace it
