Hello! It sounds like the internal battery may have failed already.

When you charge it, please make sure the device is powered off fully. Otherwise, it will take much, much longer than normal to charge.

Since you're trying to charge it in your vehicle, try to charge it at least four hours, if possible..then check the power level then. Try to make sure it doesn't get too cold in there also.

Please let me know if it charges ok in your car, then we can go from there.
