If that does do anything and you have no external lipo charge to test your battery with, try emailing your camera vendor with the details. You can likley get a replacement battery under warranty.
You are pretty in-tune with this camera stuff and the vendors. You called it, I emailed them after my last reply and they are sending out a new battery. Guess I'll be waiting another 2+ weeks for that now. I might crack open the camera and take a look inside in the mean time.
