Thanks!

When the battery is low, you can turn it on & record for a minute or two, then it turns itself off. You can turn it on again when you notice, and it turns itself off after 30 seconds or so. You would think if battery was dead, it would not turn on at all, but that is not the case, which made it difficult to diagnose at first.
And to add to CrashMaster39's post, you could ask yourself why the battery isn't charging. The most common problem is a flaky USB cable. Try another cable, or yet another. The green LED should stay on for about 2 - 2.5 hours if your battery is flat.
