    might give it a few minutes to charge and see if it boots but sounds like a bad batt to me.....

    i am sure the guys at RIM thought of that and its ok to leave it plugged in after its fully charged

    I does sound like it's a bad battery. The whole purpose of buying the proper charger for your phone is for this purpose. When a manufacture makes a charger for a specific phone it has smart chips in them, even though it sits on the charger all night, when it's fully charged the brain inside the charger stops charging, so it will not over charge the battery.

    When a phone is chaging it starts off with a rapid charge for 80% of the battery, then the next 20% is a trickle charge, this way it gets fully charged. Car chargers just do a rapid charge but they never give a full charge to the battery.
